Astounding wonders of the Earth

Statues that have stood the test of time

Ancient structures of pyramids

Seemingly a series of sequential steps

Others found on higher ground

Stony blocks, weight in tonnes

Hauled into place, workers of the great

Deep within a royal tomb

Gleaming smooth surface

Stripped of limestone covering

That of great measure

Preservation thereof, a mummy rests

Clothes and jewellery to the afterlife

Avid depths of chambers

Pyramid passage

Spiritual door

Ever-present, evermore
