Castle Stories

Shadows creep in sunlight
From the valley far below
Stairs lead to endless woodlands
A traveler’s grave to know

Blue skies outline the mystery
Of corpses never known
A castle built in history
Of seeds that were not sown

The journey of our lifetimes
Takes on its own dimensions
Unraveling in our world
Years of past dissensions

Beyond the wall are children
Fussing in their beds
Mothers nursing their wounds
While keeping cooler heads

Deep within the basement
A cry is heard no more
Absence grew not fonder
As it closed the cellar door
