Within the walls where ancients dwell

Neanderthal and before more than the spirit realm.
there the legends wait to return.

When the wind raged through the land and
the ice aged the stones
when the glaciers combed the valley sides
and life was harsh
that was the time more than,

but life was always that way,
the way we
lived for the minutes to eat up
the hours
those who busted the sod
before man and his God
wasted their time
