Many pillars, no devotion
One pillar, many devotions.
But this one will now
Stand forever, unblinking.

But from where? Just the past.
Which past is uncertain
But it is Attic old and
Worn and demands devotion.

And the image outweighs the
Solitary reality – iconic?
Not reflecting anything other
Than a beacon to be enjoyed.

The surviving one pillar of Apollo
Nothing whole about it
But enough to visit,
To evoke and recall, fair Aegina.
