Sword of Runes

Brave young Andrew had a goal

To be like  all the Knights of old!

So he set forth to Somerset to Glastonbury Tor

To forge a sword of magic strength to be his for evermore.


Forged of steel a millenia old  with a magic rune design

Smelt in the fires of an acient Smith magic and lore entwined.

His  Mother Susan the wise acompanied him on his quest

The fair Leona, faery Queen  betroved of  heart there also at his behest.


To hide  their high born nobleness and lofty heritage

A humble cottage  their dewilling was so with the locals they could merge.

So now we wait with excitement growing

How fairs the bold Andrew is his sword a glowing.


With honest sweat upon his brow

Lessons leaned from the crusty Smitthy now.

Hail brave Knight , Sir Andrew the bold

We wait, breath baited  your weapon to behold!

    So – you’re an Arthurian/Camelot/Morgan Le Fay fan also. EXCELLENT!!! I’m just a bit on the obsessed side of the history vs mythology and the Christianity vs the old religion.

      Yes it is a really interesting era the transition of Druids,Magic and the new Christianity. I love all stories from that time. I am glad to find some else with Arthurian leanings.

        If you check in the Book Nook Catagory on my blog you’ll find a review of three books by Robert J King, you can only get them in print and on order now but they are one of the best versions of I’ve come across. One told from the Perspective of Merlin, One from Morgan and the other from Lancelot. It melds much of the old religions and gives a different take on much of the genre. You of course may have read them but if not they’re worth the look.

    Awesome story/poem/legend Willow. The whole concept of starting at the bottom to work your way up is a pet topic of mine (shades of Jonathan Livingston Seagull). Love stories like that – legends or history or current. Peter the Great is a fav of mine for the same reason.
