the elfin king


  • Loyalty

    the elfin king

    the light did break

    the ties that bound

    the elfin king of lore


    the gifted sage

    the mighty mage

    the champion of war


    he lay long bound

    beneath the ground

    til love would break his chains


    to heal his heart

    and mend his sword

    and bring the gentle rains


    he fought no more

    nor stood his ground

    against the darkened sky


    and when the battle cry

    did wane

    he batted not his eye


    for to be a king

    and love his land

    and save his lady wife


    on bended knee

    and battered face

    he offered up his life

    Poetry is not the expression of personality but an escape from personality.
