The Rune

February 17, 2005

The sword has fallen

Between the stones

The gems have scattered

Among the bones

But there is still

The rune in the sand

The sword was lost

The sword uncovered

The gems were dropped

Where the dust hovered

Someone has touched

The rune in the sand

It does remain

The rune in the sand

Unmarred in the earth

By the cruel hand

Though the sword fall

And though the gems dull.
