The Colossus of Rhodes

The intellect behind you
Were great without measure
Such that your fame grew
A poweful you, a life treasure.

Helios still would be glad
Gifted hands who thought him 
up
The beauty of your stood
The fame that you had
Like the running over of a cup
Your sight inspired every mood.

Even at your wash
The jealousy of the land
Who ruined a huge you
Your fame still a crush 
Of every gifted hand
To tell of your tale so true.

Though great was your fall,
In my poetry you mightily stand 
tall.
