DEFEATED BY ANCIENT MAN

The CAVE was black in the Endless gloom A place beyond all light! Deep and dark as the Middle Earths Ten times much more than night!

The stalactites hung like gleaming teeth Of a Monster long extinct; The water dropped with a silvery tone Of an echoing long deep plink.

The walls where My flashlight shone on them. Were the hues of paradise, I dropped a rock far over the edge, And it bounded once, then twice.

I was glad I knew my way out from This CAVE like the UNDERWORLD Else I step wrong on the slippery rocks And to far depths be hurled! And the bones of Bear and Wolf and Cat Testified right well

That others had not known So to their deaths they fell. I thought I was the only one To know of this retreat. With no other signs of Man about The Silence hugged me sweet!

But then I turned a corner sharp And there in the ghostly light; Painted so real I first thought they were. So they gave me quite a fright! Were Mammoths big with their ivory tusks

Gleaming in the light! Running forever across the walls Of a long and endless night! And Bissons real as the orbiting Moon As from snarling Dogs they ran.

But they weren't going fast to safety soon For their Makers had been Man!

How thrilled I was to find them there! Yet I almost uttered a curse: It seems there's no place left on Earth That you can discover, first!

That you can discover, first!

That you can discover, first!

That you can discover, first!

How thrilled I was to find them there! Yet I almost uttered a curse: It seems there's no place left on Earth That you can discover, first!
