Perched high up on a granite hill an old,
Crumbling castle looms - but ruins remain,
An ancient monument to legends told,
Of bravest deeds and glory was domain -
But long-abandoned ramparts silent stand;
No cries of war nor sighs of courtly love
Echo in the vacant yard - though once grand
Was knightly banner streaming high above!
Now grey headstones succumb to earth and weeds
As Time's ever-sculpting hands mould the stone
And flesh alike; no reverence for deeds
Of Man's design, so unpreserved the bone --
But futile to pine, you transient guest!
Shed the tears and seize your singular quest.

CG,
Your words rang true for the days of lords and ladies and still hold that truth for today. ~L
