The Unicorn in Autumn

Darkling armies stand awe-hushed
Hearing rumours and whispers
Tired arms raised skyward
Stark, growing bare
Pleading that it not be so
Their pride stripped
As rusting badges fall,
Vapour engulfing their crooked feet
Little swirls between their naked toes
Cold like Neptune’s embrace
Drowning the hoar crusted blades
Brittle, un-tempered
No fire to steel them
Fractured underfoot
As the mists are stirred
By a passing entity
In white mourning raiment
A fleeing apparition
Hounded by wolves of winter
His hair like gossamer floss
Flowing in unfelt breezes
Holding his sabre aloft
Useless, hopeless
Blind eyes and deaf ears
His heart is crushed
Unseen forces press around
Frost has conquered him.
Thus begins his trek
Heaving sighs and streaming tears
Feeling the urge of desperate climes
The king is dethroned
Compelled to reign elsewhere
For a season,
His throne ever moving
To places where birds flee,
Until beckoned from exile
At the cry of abandoned seeds
He will return
Commanding the dawn
And raising the armies from the dead.
