Warriors Come Out to Play

Image borrowed by Google Images



Warrior’s come out to play e a
A familiar song sang not four decades behind
Yet I find myself slipped into another time
A time that is either long forgotten or lost?
Am I in a land that ever existed?
Yet, I tremble with the unease of unfamiliar surroundings.

And calm myself by singing that song now
Warrior’s come out to play
Warrior’s come out to play

Trident jewel encrusted
Sword to split a hair
Shiny mail coats my torso
Up high I sit a fair.

Roswell, my steed climbs 20 hands
He shimmers in the silvery light
Adorned with the finest of armory
The wicked he will smite
He is gifted due his bravery
Fear he is not aware,
Oh fear, he is not aware.

And I calm myself by singing that song now
Warrior’s come out to play
Warrior’s come out to play

My guardian light gifted by Aelfric,
Fae ruler, I not know he
A glorious beam sees me on my journey
Affording me the gift “to see”
Where there be friend or foe
Shifting colors warning me at every bend
Protecting us,  I tread cautiously fore we go.

And I calm myself by singing that song now
Warrior’s come out to play
Warrior’s come out to play

The forest is deep with treachery
Evil’s plot is set in motion
The trek is salty and steep
It climbs the cliffs near the ocean
Warrior’s may join or harm
The water sprite’s dangerous bite
Yet tensions have set the fae at alarm.

And I calm myself by singing that song now
I calm myself by singing alone now
Warrior’s come out to play
This warrior is ready to play.

"Am I in a land that ever existed?"
"Friend or foe?"

This is an inspired write. The repetition strengthens the piece ad is used in exactly the right way. The call of the Warrior is one that is unmistakable. Thank you for directing me to this piece.

I too read your writing. However, I find it hard to comment on everything. Primarily because of my mental health issues and focus, not to mention the drugs.

Thanks again fr your support. Gros Bisous, Love and Light,
