Morgaine Returns Home

When the white light filled the sacred grove

and all those unprepared hid their eyes,

crying out in terror, the fear and the awe

that descended upon them from the skies;

only she stood, tall and all-knowing

for only she saw the lands,

throwing back her hood and touching her brow

where the crescent filled her hands.

"i greet you, Mother- now hear my plea!"

and a figure in white, with lending ear

settled before her, shrouded in mist,

"forgive these folk, who live in fear!

I remain your servant, your ears and eyes,

use me as the tool for your bidding-

and erase these attempts to banish you back

into these lands, now hidden!"

and from the forests, lush and green

came an unlikely audience; a vast herd

of followers, who once accepting

rejoiced at having these old words heard!

painted in blue, but light and quick

on silent feet, they rushed to summon

the ancient barge, once thought lost

in the face of a conquering unbecoming.

the oars they lifted in utter silence,

and averted their eyes as she stepped upon

that shrouded means of her returning home,

to the ancient isle of Avalon.
