How Many Lost Words?

Legends of Windemere

The Idea Pile The Idea Pile

How many tales have been lost?
To history’s brutal ways
Burned for blasphemy
Torn apart by fear
Never to return to the page
Knowledge buried
So deep it suffocates to death
Stories shredded
Cast to the winds and tides
All that will never be again
One chance to make them last
Destroyed by mindless beasts
Masquerading as men
How much of us has been lost?

                                                                                                                                                                                                   

Inspired by hearing someone mention the Library of Alexandria and other events that resulted in the destruction of books.  Makes me wonder how many of those tomes held knowledge that could advance us to a new age or stories that could change the way we look at fiction. Ever think that the secret to happiness or the key to global peace had been written long ago, but somebody had the information destroyed?
