Look on my works, ye Mighty and despair!

A little boat tied to a willow tree

Within a rocky cave, its usual home.

of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare

Stand in the desert, Near them, on the sand

Half sunk, a shatter’d visage lies, whose frown,

And wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command.

After W Wordsworth, P B Shelley.
