In Hallowed Halls. (a rondeau.)

In hallowed halls old art is shown
not bronze, silver or Pharaoh's thrones,        
these painters dead and fossiled grave        
our ancestors the stone-age brave        
who left their art on humble stone.        
        
Great auks, Mammoth in pastel tones        
arrows loosed, stones, spears soon are thrown        
full captured here except for groans,       
in hallowed halls.        
       
Bison, wolf, bear, the dappled roan        
for forty thousand year have roamed        
the dusty walls of these old naves,        
their temples then, their art engraved,        
our seed to art now here is sown,    
in hallowed halls.
