We are many that walk a path, we are many that succeed and many that fail… the Kings are those who succeed and go on to teach others of their journey humbly and aptly ~Lily of Lough Neagh~

Dedicated to a man I am honored to know

 A Page before her King


I see him on the horizon

Pen mightier than sword

For this Page you brighten

For mighty is your word


Revered by all who know him

The battles that he won

The King doth stand afore me

A Page so aptly drawn


My King you have slain many

To thee I humbly bow

Please teach me so I may that

Learn from you somehow


For I aspire your knowledge

And you have taught me well

Patience part the answer

Life’s journey too as well


 He beckoned the Page closer

For so that she may see

The battle scars upon him

He fought so mightily


For I have gathered wisdom

My young inspired Page

So listen what I tell you

As though I am your Sage


I fought a many dragons

Along so many roads

For they were many lessons

And met a lot of toads


More valleys dry like deserts

Where I did so much thirst

At times I thought I’d perish

At times I felt me cursed


At times upon the mountains

I stood near at the cliffs

For times I felt defeated

Sometimes I felt adrift


But wisdom was my teacher

Although naught were it seen

Until I won the battle

For life can be so mean


I fought the mighty Kraken

Medusa and her whiles

Was smote upon by many

Yet nary did I fall


It was my inner strength

It was my destiny

For so I can teach others

To avoid such suffering


Although life can be cruel

I cannot save them all

I write the words to touch

So others hope naught fall


I’ve earned all of my scars

For they have taught me well

I have gleaned the strength

For others I can tell


The journey has been long

And also very rough

And naught for faint of heart

For that I’ll never bluff


But listen to me well

My dear young little Page

Your King now can stand mighty

Naught sword but glyph engraves


On every path I walked

On every mountain climbed

On every desert crawled

It will so be inscribed


For they will know my name

For so I have been there

For there are others like me

And some that were ensnared


But all my strength within me

And all my fortitude

To win those mighty battles

For I have made it through


Learn my journey well

My young inquiring Page

For I will give all insight

The walk that I have made

"Old English" is certainly not my favorite manner of communicating but I believe I understand the theme you are sharing via your verses here, Carolee (Carol). In any case, it is a fine tribute to someone you respect. Thank you for sharing. Love and best wishes to you,

Wow you must really have some mentor here Lilly to write about them. They should be happy about it! Great writing

Reviewed by Ronald Hull 7/14/2012
Your poem has an epic quality to it. We all stand on the shoulders of giants who went before. Whether it is our English teacher or some great author we admire, our writing and thoughts are forever changed by having our paths cross theirs.

Very well done in perfect rythem, for yes the elders do have wise and sage advise to pass on, sadly most youth need to learn by their own mistakes and get their own scars.

Carol, Some of us follow and some lead...For tomorrow we cannot know what will be...Some have the gift of sight, knowing ahead when others will fall and never giving up to climb over the wall...

Beautifully penned from your heart as always!!

Quite a loving tribute, Carol, but I imagine the King would surly tell you that he has also learned from you. That is the magic of the give and take of a relationship, be it between lovers, be it between mortal enemies, or between a King and a Page, each shines on the other.

what a fantastic tribute to King.
And I know this King, he is worth every single word of it.
He is really "the King"

Fantastic Carolee
