Ploughed ridges in sky praised

Below land churned by toil

Magic stones chiselled raised

Midst fields of grain rich in soil

Though builders have long gone

Their monumental stones remain

Memorial’s faith in standing stone

Where man and time and sun join

Over miles of rough tough terrain

In purposeful unity jealousy crushed

Muscle worked for communal gain

Pulled together roped and pushed

Lonely, proud megaliths have told

Of ancestral views of seasons kind

Teaching us - stand firm resolved

For welfare common - steady mind


May my mind steadily face thy face, fixed on thee like megaliths that face the sun. May it be steady May we emulate the ancient quarrying communities that shaped dead rock. May we emulate their determination, dedication and single-minded purposefulness.
