And wrinkled lip and sneer of cold command,

Tell that its sculptor well those passions read

Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,

The hand that mocked them and heart that fed.

And on the pedestal these words appear:

“My name is Ozymandias, king of kings:

Look on my woks, ye mighty and despair!

Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare

The lone and level sands stretch far away.
