Ivory of the aeon;
Ancient, so white.
~
Tall skinned tower,
Free of tundra blight.

Someone hurt you,
A millennium ago.
~
Colossal, now cowering,
A beast buried by snow.

They will use your teeth,
To tell stories of men.
~
They will eat your flesh;
Guide them, winter wren.


God of glaciers,
Hear me from the Holocene.
~
Take me to your graveyard,
Of the giant and oliphantine.
