by Ash Leaf

Proud Triumph and vain girder
Broken walls and ancient stone
Brute estate and snapped timber
And fallen towers made one
Beneath the dark green mantle
of ivy's timeless tenure.

Under her shade slumber
The forgotten dreams, a people
Vanished, their hopes long gone.
Only green heritage shall remain:
dark ivy survives flesh and bone
To make the dead wood live again.
