They held each other close, and turned their backs upon the end.
The hills that split asunder, and the black that ate the skies;
The flames that shot so high and hot that even dragons burned,
Would never be the final sights that fell upon their eyes.
A fly upon a wall, the waves the sea wind whipped and churned,
A city of a thousand years, and all that men had learned;
The Doom consumed it all alike, and neither of them turned.

Tyrion Lannister and Jorah Mormont (Game of Thrones).

        Thanks again, and I’m glad I ran across your blog post, posting the poem of the Doom that came to Valyria. Right on!

    I added an ๐Ÿ‰ emoji for effect; not that it needs any effects, extremely powerful; what a line, what a metaphor — fantastic in its accuracy.
