Where do ancient words of the gods go – as the eons fly; remember:
(For example: that high Olympus ruler perched in sky and thunder,
Reduced to coat-of-arms Latin, and, to ornate crafted fist scepters.)
Their raiment, a many colored coat interpreting dreams for Joseph,
Their value: twigs sprouting perennial sapience on the tree of life,
Looking down at time thumbing through history’s folios in amber,
Their eagle-eyes spotting eternal truths roosting in fables’ tundra.
