Oceana and Seth of Tagriel

by Seth Tagriel

Age Group: Adult


In a distant, ancient, far off land
Of beautiful oases and golden sand

Lays a city that few knew well
The old city-state known as Tagriel
It is here that lived a mortal man
Who hailed from a prestigious, noble clan

With love he lived an honorable life
While by the sword, he’s inflicted with strife
For war and death he knew to well
As his fate, he could easily foretell

But mostly this was far from thought
For a persistent dream is what he sought
A maiden that he hopes to one day find
As it’s thoughts of her that occupy his mind

While in his dreams he finds her here
It’s wide awake that she’s nowhere near
So with the Gods blessings he left his home
Searching for his love, in these lands he roamed

Endless days and sleepless nights
He travels on, his love still far from sight
Lonely nights and depressing days
Has become his life, has become his ways

For rumors he finds in the land he goes
As it’s her, the whole world knows
A fair maiden, honest and true
With a beauty that the whole world knew

Troubled with the fact that it’s only rumors he finds
He now thinks that maybe she’s just a rumor of his mind
Of the years searching without much luck
A crippling blow to his heart is struck

Not knowing the direction to now make his way
It’s to the Goddess of love he begins to pray
“Goddess please, with your aid let me know
Where it is in this world that I should go”

“For I would sacrifice my life in a battling fray
Just to have the chance to find her one day”
It’s now in a divine vision that came to him
Which showed him the land that his soulmate is in

He boards a ship to cross the sea
Heading toward the city-state known as Misty
It’s here that he hopes to one day find
That persistent dream of his heart and his mind

The story begins with a message that all should know
A true love will be with you where ever you go.


In a beautiful rich town of the upper northeast
Just on the border of ancient Rome and ancient Greece

There lived a maiden, Fair, Honest, and True
Who had a rumored beauty that the whole world knew
With love and goodness in her heart, she lived her life
While many of men tried and failed to make her their wife

She grew up with a thought in her mind
That occupied her fantasies and her time
Wide awake, but yet fast asleep
It’s in her dreams she finds the love she seeks

A Kind and Caring, and Gentle man
A traveler from a distant far off land
She prays to the Gods for her dreams to be
For her lover’s hand, she hopes to see

Harsh winter days and soft summer nights
She stands at the gate, hoping he’ll soon be in sight
Lonely nights and depressing days
Has become her life, has become her ways

For tears and pain is all she finds
As now she feels her lover, is only in her mind
Years have passed and fears set in
For now she feels, she will never see him

Soon grief and sorrow gripped the town
The day they found her lifeless on the ground
They carried her to the field where she played
Back in those innocent childhood days

In a startling moment she opened her lovely eyes
Some say, to speak her final words before she dies
“When he comes, please don’t let him know
That I left this land before he could show”

“Just leave a message for him to one day know
And no matter what, tell him I still love him so”
With a smile and a drawn sigh
She passes with the closing of her eyes

To a better place she now does go
In hopes that her lover will soon now show
With a broken heart she lays on the ground
As now the town folk stand without a sound

It’s in the soil of the dark rich ground
They lay her to rest, just outside the far wall of town
And where she does now lay, a marker does now stand
So she will be found by, her lover from the distant far off land

The story is sad, but with a message clear to say
A true love will be with you till your dying day


“To Arms!” “To Arms!” was the town scouts call
As the men and boys ran to arm the walls

The sword men sharpen their swords; the bowmen string their bows
The spearmen grab their spears, while they waited for their foes
While all the streets stood quiet, quieter then any other night
As the whole town readied for a violent and bloody fight

Right behind the city gate, stood just one man
That came to here, from a distant far off land
With a shield at his front and his axe by his side
He gazed around with a fearsome look that made all who seen it, run and hide

The town knew him as Seth of Tagriel, from across the sea
Who came here in search of his love, that would make him happy
People say the only time you could hear him speak
Was when he was in the dreamlands fast asleep

They say they heard him speak of the Gods, and fights from long ago
And of an Oceana, who’s beauty the whole world should know
It’s rumored that he traveled near and far in these lands
But without the luck of ever finding her lovely hand

So now he stands ready to die, amidst the battling fray
For an army of thousands arrive, on the field this day
He stands ready to fight for his new home
As now the Thirty Cities declared war with Rome

The commander’s horns filled the evening air
As Seth opened the gates and stood with his fearful stare
The enemy troops crest the top of the hill
While Seth raised his axe, and stood very still

Then the enemy horns came blasting once again
As the enemy lines began charging in
And from the town walls arose joyous shouts
When Seth of Tagriel came charging out

The archers of the wall sent a volley to help clear the way
As Seth of Tagriel clashed within the glorious fray
A swinging of his axe cut men down
A river of blood now soaks into the ground

Panic and fear gripped the enemy array
As fast as they charged in, they charged out of the fray
Over the hills the enemy did crest
Heading to their homes in the far distant west

And from the field, the brave man came
Back to the city with glory and fame
With a weak grip, he dropped his weapons to the ground
As now the people stood, without a sound

Dying from his wounds he dropped to his knees
While the town folk turned out to hear his pleas
“I lived my life searching for her, but did not find her near”
“I now know that where I go I will definitely find her here”

And with his last and dying breath
His love for her he did confess
And soon his eyes shut, never to open again
Sad were all the woman, and sad were all the men

But the truth in his words they did know
For a secret they had, they never did show
A grave that stood outside the far wall of town
In a place that Seth of Tagriel never really found

On the marker it states: “Seth I want you to know,
In this life we missed each other, but I still love you so”
The story my friends, is coming to an end
With a message that I’ve been trying to send

No matter what conflict can come about
Love will find a way to always work out


Land of eternal summer, where life comes to renew
With fields of lovely green, and a sky of beautiful blue

It’s here in this very ancient Summerland
That a beautiful soul has come to stand
She waited for her true love, till her dying day
For it is this willing sacrifice, she had to pay

Arriving now, in this most peaceful place
Her eyes desire to look upon his face
As it is a thought, she could wait for him here
It’s the thought he never existed she has always feared

Scared and Inpatient to wait for him again
For fear of a happiness she will never win
Her life could have meaning, if she loved him, and believed he knows
Then love him and wait to have him never show

Slowly opening her mouth, she begins to speak
As a tear she sheds rolls down her cheek
She glances toward the clouds, high above
While she takes a step to find her one true love

“I’m determined to find you rather then wait
For I truly believe that us meeting is our fate
Where to start, I only wish I knew
Where you are, I only wish I had a clue”

The land she will travel she does not know
Her heart is her compass directing her where to go
When her journey ends, it’s him she hopes to see
For it’s in his arms, she truly wishes to be

Search these lands she will, high and low
As somewhere in this land he is, and she knows
Land of eternal summer, where life comes to renew
With forests of beautiful green, and water of lovely blue

It’s here in this very ancient Summerland
That a prestigious soul has come to stand
His life was taken, amidst a battling fray
For it is this noble sacrifice he had to pay

Arriving now in this land of peaceful rest
His heart desires to continue his life’s long quest
As it is a thought he could find her here
It’s the thought she never existed he has always feared

Scared and weak to start his journey again
For fear of a happiness he could never win
His life could have meaning, if he loved her, and believed she’s around
Then love her and have her nowhere to be found

Slowly opening his mouth, he begins to speak
As a tear he sheds rolls down his cheek
Closing his eyes, he crashes to the ground
Imagining the maiden, to which he has never found

“It’s my thoughts of you, that kept me going through the years
It was my determination to find you that led me here
But to search this land, it’s something I ultimately fear
For what do I do, if I do not find you here”

His heart was what directed him on his journey all along
So now he questions if it was right, or if it was wrong
To search no more he sits and waits, his journey incomplete
Of the lands traveled and battles fought, it’s his fear that has him beat

But as fate would have it on this summers day
A traveler of these lands, has discovered him where he lays
He opens his eyes, to a shadow that was cast
To see a beautiful maiden from dreams long past

He rises up to look upon her lovely face
For now in each other’s arms, they finally embrace
Together now they shall never be apart
As true love they felt in each other’s hearts

The story ends, with one more message to know
If in search of your soulmate, you wish to go
Fear can be difficult when it forms in ones mind
Just keep hope with you, because love will conquer in time

Four lessons I give, four lessons you’ll have when we part
Use them well if a journey for love is what you start
To find your soul’s mate, it’s the hardest thing to do
But much happier you’ll be, if their love you knew

So remember these lessons and forget them never
For a soul mate’s love will last forever

Author's Notes: I wrote these pomes in stages starting with III, then II, I and finished with IV. I'm not sure of the real reason that this story came to me, just one day my muse wispered in my ear and this is what I wrote writing this feel a strong connection with the plot of the story in true love and looking for your soulmate...
