Kubla Khan

Rating: 3.8
In Xanadu did Kubla Khan
A stately pleasure-dome decree :
Where Alph, the sacred river, ran
Through caverns measureless to man
Down to a sunless sea.
So twice five miles of fertile ground
With walls and towers were girdled round :
And there were gardens bright with sinuous rills,
Where blossomed many an incense-bearing tree ;
And here were forests ancient as the hills,
Enfolding sunny spots of greenery.

This poem came from a prosodic genius. A 3.8 star rating is an insult to this great 19th century British poet.

Reading this beautiful poem again I couldn't but help of climate change and the catastrophes it brings to some man made majestic constructions.Even the glaciers can't escape that ominous wreath of Nature.

If you liked this poem, try listening to RUSHS version of Xanadu, about a person how hears of whispered tales of immortal only find it was more of a curse.
