Ballads of Fallen Angels

March 22, 2010 at 00:46 15 comments

Cried the skies, the moon and the stars
But held its calm has thy holy grace
Where goes thee my sweet little angel?
Thou who hast fallen from his place
Where goes thee my sweet little angel?

Men saved, thier valor lost
nations drowned in a flooded past.
humble servants, muted slaves
the pain and suffering, carves
memoirs of friends that last.

Battles fought won or lost
Bare the scars of burdens past
Crescents, stones and arks galore
all that makes history’s lore
Ballads and songs of poets old
muted by the winters cold

Legends live only in the past.

    Legends. The past. We breathe life into legends now, though.

      I agree. That is a optimistic take on things. Mine was a bit cynical.

    wonderful…old world charm…legends live only in the past…how true…a lot of people but no true hero

    I love the archaic take…I have done a couple using same way…and it has a touch of classic piece!

    What a lovely poem!

    Well said. If it was not for the poets, legends would be long forgotten. Poets are legends too.
