i wrote this after a visit to the castle...there is a such a grave air about the place...it seems as if the walls themselves are whispering about the earlier inhabitants

A sea wind laps 'cross the skin,

And through its chill brings burning blush,

And coaxing out the soul within,

Carries it down the cliffs in a frenzied rush,

And leaping back upon the fields,

Chasing mists that blur the grass,

And at the openness of sky it yields,

And flows around the towers last.

The burden-heart is carried high,

And set to plummet down,

The soul is lost amongst the sky,

While the soles stay on the ground.

The body left behind looses a call,

An echo to the stones,

So the spirit leaves the walls,

And the wind, in sorrow, moans.
