One Random Arrow

29 Nov

Caerphilly Castle (Wales)

One Random Arrow

A brilliant pile of stones

Fashioned into fortress home

Gate and wall and moat and hall

Archers ready, towers tall

The enemy at hand

Main Yard, Caerphilly Castle (Wales)

King walks behind to help them stand

Volley lofted o’er the wall

King, of a sudden, falls

Guards, walls

Insufficient all

To stop the fall of

One random arrow

Inspired by a visit to Caerphilly Castle (Wales), built ca.1270. Photographs taken by the author.


Other poems of mine can be found here on my Writings page.
