A monolith full fifty men in height

With strides full hundred long. Hide so coarse

Like scorching leather take the beast in light

And gentle steps across the barren land,

Where crystal tusks and diamond gaze command.

 

Vast sigils, glyphs and symbols from a source

Unknown and clandestine. Their jointed limbs,

Like legs of giant spiders, twitch and force

The Dalíphant along, directing sheer,

Unwav’ring poise wherever they might steer.

 

End.
