At Baalbek

(in answer to Totius, in answer to Dolf van Niekerk)

Against the crumbling six pillars stand sky-high
even at this utterly heathen sun-worshiping place,
where the colonnades do stand alone at Baalbek
I look at the bow of a Jupiter-arch
and totally desolate everything lies for the eye,
where an earthquake in 1759 brought destruction,
the extent of this place jumps into my mind
