Olde questions arise
with the sound of the snow,
when I lastly die
where wilt my soul go?
Few moments pass by
as I walk on the water
though where my
path go no longer a matter.
Blades ring a loud clang
as my memories sing
of the Goddess and Stag
and my lust on the wing.

Merlin,

Is it the time of year or the years of time that make us feel our mortality?  Well done.

If we follow the right path in this time, then it will not lead us astray when we need it the most.

The road has many twists and turns, but the path is steady and will carry us to our destination...no matter which one we follow.  But, it's nice to know the end before you get there.

I am but an olde fool mlady.  What you perceive as 'wisdom' is but the dust of many footfalls shaken from a tattered olde robe with the stars and symbols faded from its surface.

Bowing humbly.

This young knave would gladly accept such wise dust. Seems to me, to be as valuable as some of your faery dust.

If we keep a shoulder to the wheel, the path need not wander . . . but the wondering still meanders in. We all should live and go like the legendary Zebulon Walton.

A good look.
