Why, O Why?
« on: January 07, 2008, 01:26 PM »
I am the eye
that sees the spy
when caught decry
the open lie
that I
am but a gadfly.
Through open door
doth man implore
a sore
and lonely bore
of weakly core
to explore.
Thereon to find
a simple mind
in kind
not blind
to things defined
and café’ grind.
Renowned is he
quite famously
of stature knightly
who merrily
seeks with glee
his own destiny.
Alas, can be no answer
for this quiet dancer
to cure a cancer
that unseat lancer
from his prancer
despite his necromancer.

Alas, there isn't enough faery dust to effect a cure.
"Come Fairies, take me out of this dull world for I would ride with you upon the wind and dance upon the mountains like a flame."      W.B. Yeats

Life is more than just staying alive, but the play is over.

And despair not, and breathing, one must hope.

Thanks, Merlin. About all I can do in Latin is two word phrses, unless it's the motto of SC.

A very nice work that you have pulleth from the ether.  The ending was much stronger than the start which unbalanced it a bit but it was still a good showing.

You come on like a bloodstained hurricane
Leave me alone, let me be this time
You carry on like a holy man pushing redemption
I don't want to mention, the reason I know

This is a fine poem indeed

Necromancer--Hmm was that a Return to Forever song?
The clouds told him their names, in the quiet of the summer afternoon

One cannot
return the way
one had passed
another day.

Of pen and sword
the golden word
doth sing a silent song.

Magician's quill
will soon be still
despite the longing strong.
