Aftermaths, is a wonderful solo trumpet work. It is a reflection on Percy Bysshe Shelley's poem titled Ozymandias.

Ozymandias (1817)

I met a traveler from an antique land, 
Who said: “Two vast and trunkless legs of stone 
Stand in the desert . . . near them, on the sand, 
Half sunk a shattered visage lies, whose frown, 
And wrinkled lips, and sneer of cold command, 
Tell that its sculptor well those passions read 
Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things, 
The hand that mocked them, and the heart that fed: 
And on the pedestal these words appear: 
My name is Ozymandias, King of Kings, 
Look on my Works, ye Mighty, and despair!” 
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay 
Of that colossal Wreck, boundless and bare 
The lone and level sands stretch far away.”
