These remain...

Egypt’s might is tumbled down

Down a-down the deeps of thought;

Greece is fallen and Troy down,

Glorious Rome hath lost her crown,

Venice’ pride is nought.

But the dreams their children dreamed

Fleeting, unsubstantial, vain.

Shadowy as the shadows seemed

Airy nothing, as they deemed,

These remain.

~ Mary Coleridge

Quite remarkable, what happened today. May those dreams keep moving forth.


  1. I agree! quite remarkable and historical. it will be interesting to see where it all goes from here.

  2. What an appropriate and lovely poem!

  3. We should pray that what comes next in Egypt will truly be liberating and beneficial for the people.

  4. Actually that last comment was not from MM - a logging in and out problem!
