17 - The Bat

We were in a grotto of diamonds
a vast cave of glittering crystal.
The candles reflected
on the walls
a golden light,
bright as the stars
of heaven,
while great pillars
rose from the floor
like mighty trees,
mingling their branches
high above us
and drooping in hundreds
of stalactites, which sparkled
and glittered
with all the colors
of the rainbow.
