Us, soldiers of the stony hearth

Us, soldiers of the stony hearth
Hewing homage to a crowded sky
Hanging heaven onto maiden Earth
Cut stone forever cannot die.

From us, builders, comes forth god
From us, darkness comes forth light
From us all is overawed.
Us, sculptured artists of the night.

Thirteen twelve's, a sacred number
Cut in stone in all we've made
All we've made is torn asunder,
But stone remains, while all will fade.

"Ah, Man! Your stone remains, but NOT forever.
All Rocks. All Man. All dust together."

Donny McIntyre
