Magical Egypt

by TJ Arizona Eagle   Mar 15, 2012

Mysterious ancient Egypt on white burning sands
Over looked by spirits guarding sacred land
Now the weathered sphinx mighty and proud
Sentry over the desert stately unbowed

Slaves toiled and died building pharaohs tombs
Complicated building nestled in Egypt's womb
Walls told stories in demotic and hieroglyphic
Symbols beautifully etched and very specific

Gods and goddess's were worshiped and revered
Bastet was protective Amun's importance feared
Temples were erected dedicated to the gods
Lexor was constructed with a simple facade

Pharaohs ruled civilization Lords of the two lands
Raven haired beauties as queens at their right hand
Now a modern land, business's and building flourish
Ancients prepared the land with its blood nourished

    This poem is full of creativity, I like how you can tell a little bit of Egypt's story with a very descriptive imagery and still manage to do a great rhyming, I can perfectly imagine Egypt's trough your words, great poem :)

    This really is a great piece. I love how you spoke about egypt's past and then spoke about it the now. This is the kind of poem that hooks the reader in from the start.

    I wonder if i will be as good as you dude. I mean, just look as how you toy with your words to create such a remarkable piece. You must know your history really well especially of Egypt for a guy who is fron the US.
