No funeral objects or tombs have been found and no artefacts left behind. Following extensive investigations and study, scientists and scholars have attempted to put forward explanations for the grottoesbut none so far provide a convincing explanation for why they Mystery of the caves by michael waters built and what they were used for.

Also, for a long time I had been writing poems in strict stanzaic structure and had become very comfortable with those quatrains that move all the way through Anniversary Of The Air and a good bit of The Burden Lifters, although I varied it a bit in The Burden Lifters.

There was that concern with characterization again. So how did the ancient people work in the dark. That woman seems, in some ways, to be a character from one of his stories; I think of Ray when I read this poem.
