The Giants Causeway

Steps and columns

Columns of men

The giant steps

When stepping on them

Leading his men

Upwards and on

Where will he get to?

Will they have gone?

Red in the twilight

Salt spray and musk

Why stepping over?

A causeway of dusk

Climbing to conquer

Getting across

Mission accomplished?

Time at a loss

Tides whip his ankles

Striding to sea

Lesser men falter

Thus it will be.

Try as we must

We must always try

To step over causeways:

try till we die.

Each step a triumph

Make it all true:

All of us, giants

Red, white and blue! 

Stepping stones out to sunset...located in County Antrim on the north coast of Northern Ireland, about three miles northeast of the town of Bushmills, the Giant's Causeway is an area of about 40,000 interlocking basalt columns, the result of an ancient volcanic fissure eruption. Its an extraordinary sight, with so many of these hexagonal-shaped pillars, which dates back to a volcanic age almost 60 million years ago. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, Legend has it that the giants loathed each other. And so one day after enduring insults from Benandonner, Fionn built a path to use as stepping-stones to reach Scotland, which was then ripped up by Benandonner. The result was the Giant’s Causeway.
