Vengeance on Winter’s Wind

medieval

Vengeance on Winter’s Wind

They came breathless
as the wind of winter,
raised up on ashes
of bitter haste. On horse,
by armour, with lance
and sword, they came

by thousands, led by one.
An oath to take their land
by strength, by faith,
and devour refuge
as vengeance pure.
Scorch the earth,

they said, set light
the sky as they rode
that eternal host
and immortal war.
And they pierced the stars,
avaunt, the invisible night.
