To Kronos

To Kronos
by Chris Marbutt

Ageless Kronos, you gnaw at the
Foundations of creation and even
Old mountains are worn down by
Your inexorable caress.
You rise and fall in accord with Fate.
You devour your own offspring,
And thereby sow the seeds of your own downfall.
You sleep at the roots of all things,
For beneath earth and starry sky.
Beloved son of broad bosomed Gaia,
Rouse yourself from your dreams,
And waken to us here.
