Literature
The Lantern's Glow
In the dying light of a forgotten sun
I glimpsed the blessed angels' sanctity
Praying that God would crack open my lungs
And with all gentleness breathe into me
The shriven saints stood among the clouds
Singing loud and deep those sweet hymns
That would cause even the vilest man to bow
Beseeching his Lord to free him from sin
Yet upon the greatest glory I could not gaze
For His radiance outshines even Orion fair
Who from his ethereal home would often stray
With spear and hounds the bull to ensnare
May God set the soul's lamp alight
To drive away sin's foul night

Literature
Journey Of The Doomed
Plunge into the water deep
Beneath its long tumultuous waves
While sirens softly sing of sleep
Dancing among lost sailors' graves
Gaze upon the rotting bones
Of a vessel from the recent past
Her crew fated never to return home
To see widows weeping at the mass
The little children do not understand
Why their fathers greet them no more
At night they dream of the far off land
Where the ship has safely made its port
May the blessed Saint Elmo's fire
Keep away the sea's black ire

Literature
The Curse Of Remembering
I want to immerse my soul
Within Lethe's crystal waters
Every dawn and every dusk
So that I will forget the pain
Of all that has come to pass
I want to walk through Elysium
Its fields golden and glowing
The heroes of ancient myth
Welcoming me within their ranks
Kept far away from any hurt
I want to soar among the clouds
That drift over Olympus' peaks
Where the gods will call me
To come and feast with them
While the harp is strung
Sometimes I just want someone
To come and carry me swiftly
Into the deep blue of the heavens
The starwheel turning before me
As all my horrors fade into nothing

Literature
The Passing
Blood-mawed,I hungered on the hills
Where ghosts of dead men sang of life
I tore the life-spark from my chest
And cried aloud, "Where is Paradise?"
The gold rays of the Eympyrean sun
Bathed the marble graves of kings
In light that hailed their noble names
For their deeds of peace and sovereignty
The harp upon the oak strewn hill
Wailed in grief at their demise
That such men should leave the world
To stand against a host of lies

Literature
The Shattered Scepter
As sentries lament twilight's last dreaming
The golden crown crumbles in the dark of the evening
The king's ghost has passed within the Green Realm
The fair Maidens weep silver at the gilded Wyrm's helm
Death's men have taken that which is fair
Spirited him off to the Soul-Taker's lair
With scales of black iron he will decide
Wherein the fallen ruler will for eons reside
Until the war horn beckons them all
To fight the Great Battle, to win or to fall
The gods of the dark 'gainst the gods of the light
The spark of the pure defending what's right

Literature
Old Spirits
I've worked at the Green Bull Pub for around a decade now. It isn't a fancy place like some others in Ireland. Nay, Hermitsgrove is a small town, a tight-knit community full of farmers and masons, all earning just enough to support their families. The buildings have that rustic feel to them, as if you'd been plunged back through time to the eighteen hundreds. Ivy crawling up the faded brick walls is a common sight here, complimented by the cobblestone walkways on either side of the streets. Everybody knows each other, and you can't do something without another person finding out about it. It is somehow quite comforting and horribly irritating at the same time, but most of us don't mind. Usually people stop by the Bull at some point in the day, seeking a reprieve from the mundane task of working.
As for myself, I don't mind working. Sure, the job can be demanding at times, one or two guests even making a fuss, but I enjoy it. Besides, if anyone gets too rough Tam gives them a tongue-las

Literature
Remember Those Who Have Gone Before
He would walk through the streets beneath the moon's glow amidst the crumbling ruins of a people long gone. The only thing that broke the silence was the instrument he held in his hands, a wondrous peace of artistry that seemed born of the dreams of some great craftsman while he labored to find meaning within himself. A violin it was, carved from an ancient oak that once stood where druids whispered to forgotten gods. Dragons crawled across its front,their ruby eyes glittering in the darkness as they snarled at unicorns who rose their proud heads in defiance. Nor were those the only creatures that writhed across the wooden surface; manticores, gryphons, mermaids, and many others lent their ethereal beauty to this work of art. The bow was likewise ornamented with these anomalies that had so often pervaded the minds of man.
The musician himself could be considered just as fantastical, for he was not kin to man. Two long ears like that of a rabbit sat atop a head which was a hybrid of don

The Star-Wheel's Glow :iconpaladinofthelantern:paladinofthelantern 2 0
Literature
Roundabout The Castle Walls
The devil's in the details
The bondsman's in the hall
The lord is shouting outside
Against the Northern squall
The squire's by the stables
Chasing chickens with his sword
The lady's in her flower garden
Asking them about the dragon's hoard
Chaos floods the castle
The fool the only sane one
The sun is setting in the West
And now my tale is done

Your word is a lamp to guide me and a light for my path(Psalms 119:105 TEV)

*****************************************************************

Ah, fondest, blindest, weakest,
I am He Whom thou seekest!
Thou dravest love from thee
Who dravest Me.
-"The Hound of Heaven" by Francis Thompson

*********************************************************************

Bring me a wheel of oaken wood
A rein of polished leather
A heavy horse and a tumbling sky
Brewing heavy weather
-"Heavy Horses" by Jethro Tull

*********************************************************************

De profundis clamavi ad te Domine
Domine exaudi vocem meam
Fiant aures tuae intendentes
In vocem deprecationis meae
Si iniquitates observaveris Domine
Domine quis sustinebit?
Quia apud te propitiatio est
Et propter legem tuam sustini te Domine
Sustinuit anima mea in verbo eius
Speravit anima mea in Domino
-Psalm 130

*********************************************************************

The depths of a man's soul
Can not be measured in a manner
Of meters and fathoms
But rather, it is in my opinion
Only quantified by his proximity
To Heaven and Hell
-"A Lunatic's Lament" by Alesana

*****************************************************************

Inside the table's circle
Under the sacred sword
A knight must vow to follow
The code that is unending
Unending as the table
A ring by honor bound
A knight is sworn to valour
His heart knows only virtue
His blade defends the helpless
His might upholds the weak
His word speaks only truth
His wrath undoes the wicked
The right can never die
If one man still recalls
The words are not forgot
If one voice speaks them clear
The code forever shines
If one heart holds it bright
-The Old Code(Dragonheart)

*****************************************************************

United we stand
Now and forever
In truth, divided we fall
Hand upon hand
Brother to brother
No one shall be greater than all
-"United We Stand" by Steve Perry(Quest for Camelot)
