Lighthouse of Alexandria

They saw its light far out to sea;
An earthquake brought it down.
I wonder what the sailors did -
I hope they didn’t drown.

Lighthouse of Alexandria for PD’s Seven Wonders of the Ancient World contest

    Congratulations, very enjoyable piece. I really love short poems sometimes, especially when they leave with a 'hm!' like this one did.
