ON THE CERTITUDE OF LOVE AND LIFE
© 1982 by Lady Raokhsha
She roams the ragged darkness of the forest night.
Colder than winter metal is her touch,
Colder, still, her heartsong.
He stands erect and lone within its halls,
Keeper of the Castle.
Knowing its ageless secrets.
Hearing its timeless echoes.
Searching its empty recesses for a sign...
The raven screams,
Announcing the sliver of crystal light that slips between the stones to strike the dusty altar plate.
Its aching beam illumines her face.
Its reflection warms his frozen heart and loins.
The shrill clarion of the raven echoes 'round the hearthfire
kindled by the resurrection of their Love
And eternity resumes...
Author's Notes: I wrote this poem in 1982 and have used it on my Yule invitations ever since. My HP says that he thinks that it might be part of a larger piece and that I should "go back" and find the rest of it....
