Untitled (Giants) #poetry

Giants there were in the earth in those days
Striding across the hills, walking the land
Giants roamed along all the world-ways
Monsters, phantasms vanished from their approach
They warmed their cold hands with enormous fires
Giants there were in the earth in those days
Flying across the sky, fast as a blink
The whole world was to them their back garden
Giants roamed along all the world-ways
On land, animals trembled and sea animals grew deaf
In the age of the thundering giants.
Giants there were in the earth in those days.
Much was lost and forgotten — a butterfly’s kiss,
The wind’s buffet, and snow softly falling
Giants roamed along all the world-ways
Rising ever higher yet forgetting
Their roots — who they were and where they came from.
Giants there were in the earth in those days,
Giants roamed along all the world-ways.
We are the giants.

This is an unfinished poem — a draft. Comments welcome.
