Strana 196 - YOURS When the sea has devoured the ships, And the spires and the towers Have gone back to the hills, And all the cities Are one with the plains again, And the beauty of bronze And the strength of steel Are blown over silent continents As the desert sand is blown — My dust with yours forever.
