Walk not alone
on the road toward the light.
Battle not alone;
share our might.

Thy trusty Knave
and a hundred Knights
thy path will pave
with a thousand lights.

Thy three queens, together,
will sail through the mist
and emerge through the ether
To thy eternal tryst.

I've been thinking about our dear Merlin a lot today.. for some reason..

And then, here's this poem again.. oh my heart! The tears come and I'm missing him again.

VC:   I'm not positive, but I think it would have been his birthday.


Sage:  Ian passed away in January.

~  This entire thread is wonderful,

from The Merlin's original poem, to all the replies underneath it...
I'm sorry to read of your loss here...the world lost another wonderful poet

Quote
The horse returns alone
to muffled drums
and mournful minstrels
play a dirge.

Weeping,
there will be no wine
nor honeycake
beneath the alder and the ash

there is no more waiting
for he has gone to Avalon at last.


 :rose
Rest now, old friend.

and this tribute poem is also gorgeous

Thanks Shadow Angel ~ I agree, this is a wonderful thread of tribute.  Liam was very much loved within our community.  I, for one, miss him greatly; I think of him often.
