Olde Mann



Banyanamin’s reign – the oil ran sweetly on this, his Holy isle’s embrace

Adorned as if with golden crown – of sweat and bone and fur and                                                                                   entrance

Candid skies, circle of morning grey neath both tha’ bronzed                                                                                           n’broiled long hae’ther 

Such starlight eyes, so burning sentinels within any weather                                                                                           bruised nor fine

Grizzled, matted and thick locked-hair hangs, sweet rabbit-pelts on                                                                               a poachers pole

This prince, championed by his sternest stare, snorts and swallows                                                                               purest air

Haunches bowed, the neck, the sinews set, the collar, adorned this                                                                               chosen parapet 

As if the day were born in summer-sun he bears against the cold,                                                                                   ash-broken night

Purveys a scene of longest sight, to stamp, to wrestle, then to shout                                                                               his hollow roar 

Of beasts ancient, memories found, not caged or bound – the wolf,                                                                                 the bear, the boar

And Beowulf, vacant ghost of lands, rocks and nature’s grist once                                                                                   hidden in the distant mist


red stag in mist
