Walker

Post by John T Mainer on Sat Mar 05, 2011 7:22 pm



Walker comes out of the storm
Hat slouched over snow white brow
Beard torn by the howling wind
Like ice wolves in his wake

Broad his shoulders
Cold his gaze
One eye icy blue
One gaping silent scream

Through the bar door push
Roar of voices and thunder beat
Grim smile drew
Walker is come

Two men stand with fresh drawn steel
Disputed maid between
Summoned by the song of steel
Walker is come

Will no one now invite me in
Walker mocks with open grin
Maiden bids him welcome then
As he walks between the steel

Walker grabs an offered beer
One man snarls and grabs at him
Turns the old man spilling beer
And faces him with steel

Walker smiles and looks at him
Writing in the new spilled beer
I know a rune that will keep me
Safe from any steel

The second man pulled the woman near
Put himself between her and steel
Told the first to put up his steel
And let the woman choose

Walker smiled and looked at him
Gave the second a wolf’s cold grin
I know indeed a second rune
That captures a maiden’s love

The first man he did snarl and leave
The second bought the old man beer
The maidens eyes did watch them both
Until Walker stalked away

The couple went upon their way
Found the first man near the road
Lying dead beneath his bike
While Ravens eat his eyes

Walker is abroad tonight
From the storm he watches you
Welcome him and keep the peace
You stand beneath his eye
