There is a mountain that stands beside the sea, and at the top of it is a monument, raised to commemorate someone who nobody now remembers. Coarse gales blowing in off the water, and the coarse hands of the young and no-longer young, have between them entirely effaced the letters of the inscription, leaving the stone column mute, and the person it was intended to immortalise, forgotten.
