Drowned Cathedral
[by S. David] [art by Brigid Marlin]

Come let us go
Seek the time before
Time when man
Fully formed was
Young when the world
Was not as it is
The age before the age
Before the last
Ice age when
The very land was
Different before
The seas took
Into their bosom
A world that only
Legend now knows
Atlantis Mu and
The Mediterranean
Had not appeared
Great works by
The hand of man
Have since dis-
-appeared and Ys
Is no more
Still when the sun
Strikes the sea
At strange angles
Light is cast upon
The seabed
Passing through
Once windows
Of a drowned
Cathedral fish
Swim through
Works that time
Finally overcame
