The Road To Camelot

The road to Camelot rose up
Above a vast and verdant plain
Meandered through a bank of cloud
Then on through mystical terrain

Twas said one should not go alone
The road was long and took its toll
The forest hid the beasts of olde
The Pard, the Gryphon and the Troll

Though many knew of Arthur’s name
Far less , it seemed , had seen this place
Nor made the trek through Hampden Gate
To cast their eye upon his face

And those who made it through unscathed
Spake much upon a wondrous sight
The foliage green as emerald gems
An Eden bathed in golden light

Where fruit did fall like summer rain
The rivers jumped alive with fish
And feasts like none had seen before
Were brought forth simply by the wish

The traveller upon return
Was changed in spirit ever more
A sense of justice did prevail
Where none was evidenced before

For like the sun upon the skin
Great Arthur’s presence did imbue
His goodness and his wisdoms gift
Upon the brave, intrepid few

Artist's Description

Inspired by the excellent work of Sarah Moore and her image The Road To Camelot

I often write in an archaic voice as I enjoy the flow of the words. On being amazed by the Mists of Avalon series of images, I decided to write this piece.
