Peloponnesus

Guides preaching

Ancient teaching

Commerce flowering

Riches showering

Athens dreaming

Sparta scheming

Thucydides writing

Grecians fighting

Battles flaring

Warriors daring

Building falling

Future stalling

Ruins staying

Some decaying

Flowers showing

New life growing

Camera clicking

History ticking
