Merlin’s Soltice

The first rays of the golden sun burst forth upon the solstice morn.

Merlin could see for miles, yet it was not what he could see

But what he knew that caused him to mourn.

His fate entwined with Arthur, who he would out live  but he would never be free.

So much pain, so much joy, yet no peace nor rest for Merlin.

He was terrified to realize that he was immortal

What a dark premonition, to see down the years unfurling

No real rest no real peace on and on no escape portal.

Looking out across the land, finally united

Harvests good and people happy  if only his job was done.

Five men good and true to Arthur had been knighted.

If only Merlin didn’t have to know all his his battles had to be won.

Poor Merlin so much for him to carry

so much information in his dreams

So much future so many deeds to face and parry.

Merlin  sees it all on this solstice mourn all stretched out before him.

    He who can see much, carries much and bends over with much – is it a gift or a curse – to see so much – I wonder.

    They should pay you to retell the story so well, so beautifully, Willow. You’re great at it – & loving your readings right-hand side 🙂

    Just about to listen to The Last of Days.

    Just listened to it. Did you write all of that, Willow – the whole 5 minutes? Excellent. You rhyme really well. “The birds are undecided whether to stay or whether to go… urge to hide & it’s pulling me below”. Wonderful, Willow.

      Yes I did write all that poem and it was not an easy one to read out with out mistake. It was my off the wall impression of what it might be like if the world was coming to an end!….. Hope it does not happen in our life times!!
