Another from the "Shire Falls Collection", this is very Arthurian influenced for those King Arthur Fans out there. Again Enjoy!

Twas The Night Before 11/01/2005
Twas the night before change was born, for the isles of
Avalon knew naught of it before. All through the Isle
it was spoken in whisper , hushed silences echoed , the
Stirs of fear .Immortal swarms prepare their arrows
for the congregation of the upcoming, starting with the
Birth of this tiny human child.  Who’ll grow up one day
to become the once and future King. Brandishing the
Lady’s Sword, he shall smite the wicked and rescue the
poor. Through this tiny infant, Camelot shall thus
be born. In his reign the tribes will rise and also fall.
Warriors will gather round the circle’s table, justice
Shall prevail and death’s kiss committed. This will
all come to pass, for now he’s a mere babe, this boy who
will be Lord. Now there are those who must watch, like
fireflies waiting in the shadows.
