The Blade is Bright

I was tempted to split this poem up over a few weeks and claim it to be too long for one post, and if it weren’t for the fact that half the lines are the refrain, I would have done just that. I set out to write another “epic” (long poem), but it didn’t really work. Here it is anyway.

.

The blade is bright

The shadows fast

In the endless night

None shall last

.

Anger’s flared

A vow is sworn

Innocents snared

Blood is drawn

.

The blade is bright

The shadows fast

In the endless night

None shall last

.

Fell words fly

As fast blows land

Eye for an eye

Murders planned

.

The blade is bright

The shadows fast

In the endless night

None shall last

.

Child born

Twixt foe’s feud

A fighter’s thorn

This “maid’s” brood

.

The blade is bright

The shadows fast

In the endless night

None shall last

.

Baseborn lad

The son of foes

Made grandpas mad

Ceased the blows

.

The blade is bright

The shadows fast

In the endless night

None shall last

.

A word said

To pride not lulled

Misery spread

The child culled

.

The blade is bright

The shadows fast

In the endless night

None shall last

.

Hatred fanned

By this blood shed

Weapons manned

Pyres fed

.

The blade is bright

The shadows fast

In the endless night

None shall last

.

War still rages

Twixt fam’lies two

For all ages

Peace adieu

.

The blade is bright

The shadows fast

In the endless night

None shall last

.

Hope you enjoy, please feel free to comment.
