Castles In The Dale short poemUploaded by Mark Evans

I long for lost horizons, for castles in the dale
For wise and mighty dragons, and painted ships that sail
For wizards in the towers and kings upon the throne
Enchanted swords a-blazing, swift arrows straight and long

I long for misty valleys where legends come alive
To wander through a meadow where nothing ever dies
Say secret words of moving that open doors of stone
To wear a crown of silver, a necklace made of bone

I long for wild adventure, a princess as the prize
To ride a winged stallion swiftly ‘cross the sky
To hold a ring of power, a brilliant ice-blue stone
Just to live in ages ever where magic still is known

I have been writing songs and poetry since my early 30's. They seem to come in fits and starts with a handful coming all at once and then months or years in between. I also take nature photo's and perform regularly. It's all good. I work in order to be able to do the things I enjoy.
