THE PYRAMIDS OF EGYPT
The quiet environs of this waste
Whose intense heat scalds the heart:
In forming only dunes of sand
Nature has displayed its Art.
The grandeur of these pyramids
Puts lofty heavens to disgrace
What hand did build, design and frame,
They seem attired in lasting grace?
Set your craftsmanship quite free
From Nature's chains that bind it tight
For men endowed with gift of craft
Aren't prey, of hunters need no fright.
