Out of…

Out of pain my song rises,Out of the dark.Through the mist it soarsInto the night. Higher and higher it fliesToo high to see,Reaching the unreachableThe unknown. Out of the depth my song risesOut of the dark,Plunging into the waterInto the night. Deeper and deeper it fallsToo deep to feel,Singing still, ringing quietlyIn the halls ofContinue reading “Out of…”

Ancient and new, bloody and unsung, battles for and battles against. Battles of glory, battles of grief, battles of despair. I see battles.

I remember Cathraeth,Where many were slain.They rode off to battleFor victory they rode,All they gainedWas death. I remember Cathraeth:Where the field once was,Blood flows.Blood drips from broken spearsHelmets are crushed,Shields shattered. I remember Cathraeth:Where the mighty fell,No flower would bloom.Blood washes the tears away,And swords are powerlessWhere death triumphs. I remember Cathraeth.The billowing cloaks,The battleContinue reading “Cathraeth/ Y Gododin”
