... Two vast and trunkless legs of stone stand in the desert.

Near them, on the sand, half sunk, a shattered visage lies
whose frown, and wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command,
tell that its sculptor well those passions read, which yet survive...

And on the pedestal, these words appear:
“My name is Ozymandias, king of kings:
Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!”

Nothing beside remains.
Round the decay of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare
the lone and level sands stretch far away.

-- Percy Bysshe Shelley (1818)
