Do you have a poem to share? - Undale (ALL POEMS HERE, PLEASE)

Post#551 » Fri Dec 02, 2011 10:15 am

I'm glad to see that all of you have returned safely.

And I want all of you to remain here and write some poetry.

And Leelee, I do have some notebooks, but I do not carry them around all day along (not just yet).

And LadyAlyss, what a nice short poem. I enjoyed of every bit.

By the way, I feel very sad about this winter. It's december already, and I see no snow.

And there's nothing worse in this world, than a winter without snow. It totally breaks my heart.

So, I gotta keep my hopes high and soothe my mind with writing some poetry, and maybe you fellows will like of it too, who knows.


The Stream of Golden Stars


It's a lonely night, and I find myself staring at the paintings on the wall..

One of them reminds me of legends and secrets, of past and times of old..

And as I take a step towards the dying light, it ceases to rain.. For the first time today..

And as I start to remember the names of all those stars.. I imagine myself walking up there..

High and so far..


Do you wish to see what lies beyond those snowy mountains and hills..


I wish I'd be able to walk on the clouds of this sky, never to fall, never to wonder why

I long to see a storm of snow, I want to go higher, I don't want to return to the world that lies below

Ahead of me, I see a stream of golden stars, it's light is more than enough to calm my thoughts, it eases the beating of my heart..

Isn't it wonderful to know that we all can have our own hopes and dreams

If we all could fly, it would be worth of a try

A journey to the ends of this world, A journey through the space and the time

But if I'm not able to go so far.. I can still remain here to witness the powerful light..

Of the stream of golden stars..


I hope that you believe to the gods of ancient times

We're not alone in this world, this life is a gift, it's not a curse

And what if they speak to us through our own visions and dreams

Is it only dreaming, or could it be real..


What if they can change the color of the sky, and make the rivers to flow

What if they could restore the balance of darkness and light, and make all of the stars to glow

Once more.. I hope.. I want to see them one day, before our sun begins to sleep, before it is too late..

Tonight I saw one stream of stars.. There are many of those..

Many new skies to create, many snowflakes to fall..


And maybe one day.. I can revive all of the dead animals, flowers and trees..

With the touch of knowledge and warmth..

It's a feeling that shall never fade, nor disappear from our souls, so pure and free

That is what I believe from the bottom of my heart..


Do you now know what lies beyond this sky..

Do you know where to go, if you see a stream of golden stars that you must find..

I meant every word dear Brego, and our Prince of poems is right, do let us stay together, at least until the holidays are over and celebrate our professor and his genius and be grateful to be alive and fellowshipping in this wondrous place.

Lady, the imagery I received from this little diamond reminds me of the same feeling I have whenever I have the courage to watch or read The Velveteen Rabbit. I shall say no more as I am getting teary eyed and I have had enough of that over the last four days.

Oerath, I allowed myself to walk right alongside you in this contribution and while the air was melancholy and filled with fatigue and frustration, still your words that we are not alone and that life is a gift not a curse rings loudly and for me dispels all else.

I completely understand the despairing feeling of winter without masses of snowWe have endured a few Christmases where no snow down here in the valley could be seen, very rare and although it came following Chrismas it was so depressing. I cannot imagine how anyone can stand winter without snow at least a couple of days a week, it is ugly and even the remaining birds appear to be sad and do not sing.

I also deeply feel that about rain in spring and summer. Although we are surrounded by green mountains and hills, have three lakes and countless trees, we are in a semi arid area and every four years or so it seems the very heavens dry up and no rain. Then come terrifying forest fires and evacuations and one year week after week having yielded no rain , I began to actually feel very very ill, I felt I was dying. I was so desperate I went downstairs into our usually very cool in the summer basement only to feel heat. With litle strenght I put on an interactive game and part of it has rain, pouring rain and the sound. I was amazed and grateful to find my nerves calming down after a minute or two , in my mind I was walking in the downpour and I felt at peace. It is a most terrible feeling when you long for rain or snow or I suppose non of the above and your hopes are continually dashed. I shall light a candle and pray with my family that you might have a deluge of snow for a bit anyway.

Well spoken, Leelee, and true indeed. We've returned, with new poetry and new things.

I personally liked of my yesterday's post, maybe a little bit too much, but it's just so clear that it was written by me, 'cause when I read it, it reminds me highly about my past works. It's all there; fantasy, questions that make you to wonder and the flow of words is good.

Not my best, but one of the works that I shall not forget.

Also, I haven't continued my story for a week, and now I've some new material, which will last for more than few pages of writing.

So it seems that I have to do some creative paperwork today, alongside with my school things.

And by the way, I'll be starting a new thread, a story thread, in which you all can create your own characters and follow me on my journeys to explore the world and find out what is going on in the most northern lands of Middle-Earth. Is a new evil rising to dominate these innocent and pure lands once again? Find out!

This will continue from my posts in 'The Khazad-Dumish Inn', so pay attention.

Thread will be called as: 'A Journey That Never Ended'

Good evening, my fellow friends and poets. I've finally made some vocal attempts to sing a song I've been working on for a while now. I've only vocals now, but as I get back to drumming in the beginning of January, I'll start working on it's drum track, and one friend of mine should provide guitars at least.

I'll try to do my first vocal track about it tomorrow. I've nothing qualified stuff, but I will still upload it to my youtube channel. :) Got nothing to lose, I suppose.

I've the lyrics as almost ready for it, and it's a nice, little, battle-sworn tale.


In The Wake of The Ancient Gods


'I believe that the gods are real and they do hear us, but there they stand in all silence, waiting for something to happen. They know that we haven't forgotten them, they know that we haven't ceased to believe to them, but still, they await.. And I believe that they await for a day of awakening.'


From the north they came, riding forth into the battle, ready to strike!

Those men clad in armors of golden steel, with winged beasts fighting by their side

One of them blew to the battle-horn, and the fire began to rain down from the sky

It burned their enemies, as they rode towards them, showing forth all of their power and might


And there's only one man who can sing about the events of this day..

Is he one of them, or just an old wanderer who has no place where to stay..


Behold, the skies are darkening once more

The evil gods are casting their spells, but our heroes won't fall

And as the sun breaks free from the chains of coldness and ice

It shines down upon us again, it gives them strength to fight back and prevail


The sky is finally opening, though it's colors are different, clouds are fading away..

It is all that is left of this dawn.. But it will mark the victory of this day

And an sacred prophecy shall be fulfilled, and by my will and my blood

Only ashes and fire shall remain, in the wake of the ancient gods


This kingdom is now safe, trumpets are ranging, shouts of victory are echoing in the air

Today I saw a battle, unlike any other, and I saw the gods ascending back to heights of the sky

Today I saw something that wasn't a dream, today I saw, how everything in this world..

Slowly came back to life..

And as silently as the birds fly

They descended down from the sky

I believe that they heard my prayers and my cries..


'And in the wake of the ancient gods, the balance of this world will be judged.'

Fangorn's Realm

Seasons change in a green world.

Rain from the West refreshes my home.

From the mould on the rocks.

The moss on the bole.

From root to tip of the forest towers.

The tiny flower close to the ground.

The acorn dropped from the heights unknown.

Yavanna knows and unlocks them with love.

For the life of Eru she guides without thought.

In Ages long passed it began with speech.

From Oak to Ash to forest Beech.

The Elves of twighlight with Maian Queen.

She began it at first with patience and knowledge.

To learn and to listen Not too hasty now.

We loved the Elves voices for years uncounted.

Awoken by voice where before the were none.

Our voices remained hidden until we were sure.

That our language would be heard and understood.

Slowly we woke to look at a world.

Under starlight and twighlight.

For she slept for a while with her cousin Isil.

Anar the day star born of the West.

Born of the bosom of The Land Undying.

From West to East and Back to West guided anew trailed by Moon.

He loved her before and follows for ever.

A new road was chosen as even now is followed.

Growth and life was changed forever.

For great light was received with joy and love.

Our flocks grew and flourished and became strong.

A balance of life of renewal was made.

Over ages uncounted we grew and watched.

As the powers ebbed and flowed.

Now the Men have come with there hasty lives.

The Elves have gone home and my world is dimmed.

We shrink and wane as the Powers had planned.

What now for me and my world of green.

Will the dark lord finally succeed in his plan.

For his use of those who grow green will mean.

That Ages old balances will fail as my forests fall.

Look twice at a tree in a forest tall.

For we may look back before the fall.

Whisper close and slow and speak with your heart.

Perhaps you will hear an answering voice.

From Fangorn of old the voice will echo.

Okay, I already promised some poetry, and it seems that I'm in a good mood this late evening, so before I go to sleep, I'll write something for you to read.

Let it be a storytelling time with Oerath. :) 'Tis supposed to be royal stuff!


Old Dungeons and Glorious Chambers


Behold, another crimson sunrise, so proudly it shines on these lands

But it never grants it's brightness for my castle, and slowly it has become a home of the damned

Nameless beings are haunting me, there they roam in my royal halls, they're so careless and free

And I want to restore my castle back to it's past glory, so I want you to go there and slay those beasts


And then we shall see, who's the real king


Let us walk on the red carpet of the main hall

Let us walk beside my trusted knights, they've all sworn the blood oath

Let us face the fearsome creatures, open all of the curtains, let them bathe in the light

It will burn their skin, and it will grant us a chance to win, but we've to be careful and swift


For the evening is falling, and our light is fading

It cannot help us much longer, 'cause the sun is already descending

Beyond the hills!


And as darkness crawls out of it's den, all of the dead shall be awakened

We've to hold our ground, we cannot surrender our souls now

'Cause then we would've to bend to the night's will!


'And I'm not ready to give up.. My pride won't allow me to stop..

I've to calm my thoughts, I've to call upon all of my remaining strength and use the magic of souls

Isn't it obvious to do so, 'cause I'm the king, and these are my halls!'


And so he rose up, and ran through the enemy lines

With sword in hand, like a whirlwind he attacked, and he even broke through their spells of demise

I have never seen such fury in my whole life, and I believe that he is right

We cannot let this castle to fall, heroes should always answer to the adventure's call

We have to remember that we cannot ever surrender these old dungeons and glorious chambers


And so we banished the undead from these halls

And as the battle ended, we walked out of the castle to see the rise of a new dawn

Our armors shone in the newborn sunlight, our swords sang in the wind

And the king took two bottles of ale, and raised the goblet of glory and fame


I didn't say a word, there was no need to wonder, I just grabbed the bottle of ale

And I drank it without hesitating, since I couldn't restrain myself

But a good knight is a knight, who knows how to impress the ladies

And a good knight always avoids fist fights, but instead of that, he drinks until he falls asleep


Written by: Otto 'Oerath Windsoul' Timonen


Hah, I hope that one lifts up the spirits. I think this might just be one of the most brilliant things I've ever done. ^^
