The Greek Boy

Rating: 3.4
Gone are the glorious Greeks of old,
Glorious in mien and mind;
Their bones are mingled with the mould,
Their dust is on the wind;
The forms they hewed from living stone
Survive the waste of years, alone,
And, scattered with their ashes, show
What greatness perished long ago.

Yet fresh the myrtles there--the springs
Gush brightly as of yore;

Now, the American Golden Age: While they were floundering, I was pondering... No more wandering through the dark tunnels of grim determination... For no! It is time to grow! In a thousand-folded folds! For which we need an infinite fuel! (Perpetual motion) ---Nathan Coppedge

Who can forget the contribution of ancient Greece and its great thinkers towards understanding of this world and towards motivating future generations to achieve scientific and intellectual excellence. But it is also true that over the past two millennia, it lost most of its sheen and glory. Nicely portrayed. Thank you, Sir. The forms they hewed from living stone Survive the waste of years, alone, And Greece, decayed, dethroned, doth see Her youth renewed in such as thee:
