“The Intrepid” – Poetry

I saw a battle waged today between two fearful beasts –

One born in the west and the other in the east .

The first was clothed in tattered threads that formerly had gleamed –

The second wore a kingly robe made from our darkest dreams.

The first had shredded, bleeding wings that suffered many blows –

The second had the strength of iron and the chill of snow.

One carried a broken shield and crawled up from the grave –

The other drew his sword to pierce the heart of one so brave.

But with a burst of light, the crawling one was raised above –

For she still had the shield, and the shield was made of love.
