Not One to Save by skeletoninadress Not One to Save by skeletoninadress
I stand amid the roar
of a surf-tormented shore,
And I hold within my hand
Grains of the golden sand-
How few! Yet how they creep
Through my fingers to the deep,
While I weep- while I weep!
O God! Can I not save
One from the pitiless wave?

~Edgar Allen Poe

I wish people would appreciate this statue on it's own merits instead of it being the cover of Nightwish's 'Once'

lol yes I've heard a few of their songs. I took this at Cypress Lawn Memorial Gardens in Colma, California. This statue is, however, a replica. There are also two other replicas- one is at Stanford (California), the other is over on the East coast somewhere. The original is in Rome. I don't know which one was used for the Nightwish poster.
I believe this statue was also used by Evanescence?

Thanks again! =D
