Title: Fulcrum
Post by: theMerlin on March 28, 2008, 08:39 PM
Should walls of stone bar thy way,
let not the hour pass from day.
That open gate might go unseen,
nor soul of innocence so clean.
Mortal man know depth of fear,
to halt the march on path unclear.
Trudging home in fog so dark,
falling short of the castle’s mark.
The bridge belays and opens wide,
armoured helms march side by side.
Some ladies dressed in satin sweet,
await the column, knights to meet.
Their battle fought to stem the tide,
figures march with hope and pride.
In battle's dance how many fell,
The longing eye cannot yet tell.
Should lady lose her love so true,
from off the wall her dance will do.
Though now the sun fade to dim,
long tell the tale of the Kiiradrim.

This is beautiful, merlin.
Do you mean figures here?
figues march with hope and pride.
Do you mean fugues?

I'm not sure that you understood my question.

In this line

figues march with hope and pride.

Do you mean the word figures or the word fugues?

I don't think that figues is a word.

I wasn't fussing, just trying to help. You know that you're the teacher's pet.

Feasgar math, dear Merlin...

What a lovely verse...
Took me back to the days of chivalry... You are a singer of tales, for sure...
