Who said: `Two vast and trunkless legs of stone

It's breathtakingly awesome — a masterful creation of the highest caliber. My all time favorite poem. I drew much inspiration from the piece while crafting my work MANDELA — THE IMMORTAL ICON.

Ozymandias, round and decay. I mean, like many of my mind, we are fascinated with words and possible happenings, and nobody really cares about breakfast, although it may taste so exotic and tasteful. Words made patterns are our thing.

The reality of nothing is permanent is shown here. When the creations of ozymandias got destroyed, the pedestal with these words remained. It shows the everlasting power and nature of words. Poems and writings lasts long.

Shelley was right about it all except one thing. ( Nothing beside remains) Before the image was made and after it lay in the sand, The Ancient of Days was and is here......

All great or small who came had to leave this world, the death touched them softly or crudely only their deeds tell us how they were
