One thought on “Ramses II

  1. Ozymandias

    I met a traveller from an antique land

    Who said: Two vast and trunkless legs of stone

    Stand in the desert.
    Near them, on the sand,

    Half sunk, a shattered visage lies, whose frown,

    And wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command,

    Tell that its sculptor well those passions read

    Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,

    The hand that mocked them and the heart that fed:

    And on the pedestal these words appear:
    
”My name is Ozymandias, king of kings:

    Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!”

    Nothing beside remains. Round the decay

    Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare

    The lone and level sands stretch far away

    Percy Bysshe Shelley, 1818

    (Poem to Ramases II)

    Loved our image by the way… x
