ATLANTIS - The Lost Continent

                     ATLANTIS - The Lost Continent

There once was a fifth continent, known as Atlantis. Is it fact 
or fiction ? Well that is for everyone to decide. In the
early beginning of modern times there was Atlantis, an
advanced civilisation, that had moonstone crystals and used
them for suppling heat for everyone, larger crystals had the 
power to destroy the world, the scientist realised this and 
wanted to protect their secret, but the King and his astrologers 
found out about this from spies in the kingdom, they were 
planning a conquest of the new world and would travel past 
the pillars of Hercules to invade and to take control of the free 
world. As their plans were to unfold, the volcanoes were starting
to erupt with anger as they had enraged the gods with their
evil intentions, as they were all ready for there conquest 
the volcanoes erupted and people were in panic and tried to 
flee Atlantis, by this time the island was starting to sink 
beneath the waves. The evil king and his men were swamped 
by hot lava and ash and were choking on the fumes as the
beautiful cities of Atlantis was doomed. After a short time
 the few boats that did escape moved into the distance
the refugees were all looking at the destruction of the once 
proud city of Atlantis. Atlantis is now gone as it sinks into 
the depths of the ocean. Years later it would be well 
remembered as Atlantis, - the lost continent.

    Hi John, Your indepth tale of this phenomenon is captivating. I love the mystery of Atlantis and what could have happened with this legend. Looking forward to finding out the truth :)

    Hi Karen, Thank you for commenting, I wrote this poem from what I learnt about Atlantis, whether Atlantis is real or a myth we will never know I have heard it may have something to do with the Bermuda Triangle as it may have been located around that area, I wrote about this in an earlier poem 'Triangle of Mystery' posted here, feel free to browse.

    Well written prose on a well known fantasy-- yes, I do believe there may be a sunken continent. There was a song written once called "Atlantis"-- can't remember the artist.

    The backing group was of course The Shadows, and back to the movie it starred Anthony Hall, Joyce Taylor and John Dahl, it is very good try to find yourself a copy or maybe it is on You Tube. if you like Atlantis you will love it. all the best to you

    Thank You so much Kim, You are right there was actually two song that share the name Atlantis, The first version was done by Cliff Richards backing group as an instrumental, the second version was done by British pop star Donovan Leach, a vocal in about 1967, I came across this idea for Atlantis, from a movie I saw in 1959 entitled of all things Atlantis the Lost Continent
