The Nile

Rating: 2.5
It flows through old hushed Egypt and its sands,
Like some grave mighty thought threading a dream,
And times and things, as in that vision, seem

Caves, pillars, pyramids, the shepherd bands
That roamed through the young world, the glory extreme

I observe that the 'User rating' for this metaphorical poem by Leigh Hunt is 4.9/10, less than the minimal 5 points one gets for one's original new submission. I shall re-read the two excellent travel books on the Nile (in prose) by Alan Moorehead and P.B. Shelley's sonnet, 'Oztmandias'. AM
