forgotten

forgotten

years go by
millennia

ages, actions
witnessed in their passing

no chronicle but the legend
in their grain

weathered
forgotten

This is my response to Jane Dougherty’s A Month with Yeats: Day Nine (each day a new Yeats quote).

“Troy passed away in one high funeral gleam,
And Usna’s children died” – W.B. Yeats
