    I’ve seen the statue fragments Shelley refers to (in the British Museum), and also many in-situ statues etc of Rameses II, including the amazing colossi of Memnon, on the road to the Valley of the Kings from the locals’ ferry point. Those weather-beaten and half-destroyed statues do indeed stand beside nothing, as Amenhotep III’s mortuary temple (which the statues guarded) is completely gone. When it was built it was the biggest temple in Egypt.

    Those “level sands” ain’t. Not in the strip or in reality.

    I don’t get poetry. Why should I have to work hard to understand some lame words of wisdom? It’s just frustrating. The end sentence is anti-climactic. It could be written much better in straight English. Yep, I just don’t get poetry.
