The Journey to Babylon

August 14, 2011 at 7:11 pm (Poetry) (, , , )

We searched the world for Babylon-

walking ever East.

Chasing legend,

or maybe legacy,

lost among the sand.

The cries of old still called us on

til we happened upon the ruins.

And amid the joy,

the cheers and shouts,

was mingled disappointment-

for now the chase was done.
