Central America: Copan, Guatemala
Copan
William Leighton
 
(From Change)

OR more remote in forests of Copan
Are ancient sites of ruined, stone-built cities,
Where tumbling walls and statues yet well-poised,
Or fallen half buried in the rank, black soil,
Greet with mysterious mockery every eye        5
That looks upon their marble solitude;
While each grim figure with time-mouldered lines
Seems striving still to tell its marvellous tale.
