Cheek by jowl they crowd,
mighty warriors against the tide
since time began 

Forged from the earth,
their elemental connection
displayed for all to see

Branded by fire
scarred for life
magnificent to behold

Born on land
washed out to sea
Rejected by the very thing that gave them life

Cobbled, they rub shoulders
smooth each other's brows
Stand aloft in isolation

The history of the world in a windswept promontory.
