Not so much a poem, more a nice piece of old prose...

'If you want to grace the burial place of these men with some lasting monument', replied Merlin, 'send for the Giants' Ring which is on Mount Killaraus in Ireland. In that place there is a stone construction which no man of this period could ever erect, unless he combined great skill and artistry. The stones are enormous and there is no one alive strong enough to move them.'*

* Geoffrey of Monmouth, The History of the Kings of Britain, circa 1139.
