Treasure Island

Udiah (witness to Yah)

(1959 / USA)

The Statue


The story's told
Of long ago
About a statue
With a head of gold

And its breast
Did silver shine
And brassness
At lower spine

Now iron did make
The legs so strong
And at its base
Was all made wrong

For it was built
Of miry clay
And reinforced
With iron sway

It stood upon sand
Which did give way
When the base was hit
By a Stone that day

The great image
Built sixty high
Summed three sixes
From its front side

And through it was
Only six wide
It bare the mark
Of beastly pride

But the beast did crumble
And was blown away
Like shaft in the wind
Forever gone to stay

And that Stone hewn
By no man's hand
Became a Mountain
Forever to stand.

    The nature of anyone and anything believed to be grand but crumbles at weak foundations.. much truth and insight :) (Report) Reply

    Your use of biblical accounts and morals never ceases to amaze me. Your descriptive writing not only intrigues others to look back on the original source but also relates biblical accounts to world events and ideas. Never stop writing. (Report) Reply

    the tower of Pisa in Italy, built on the soft ground, that's why it is leaning, but you are singing about a statue on the unfavorable foundations! an interesting piece of work! (Report) Reply

    I adore statues so could not resist this piece by the title... im glad i did as although statues seem to be a subject poets write about this is beautifully penned and dare i say it stands taller than other pieces i have read on the same subject...I love the final lines which suggest it was made by nature.....tyvm karen (Report) Reply
