Excalibur

by Aegis   Dec 23, 2017


Am I the sword planted
firmly in the stone-

entrenched?

Or am I the stone,
damned to be pierced forever
by a forsaken
blade?

    Loved this. A quandary I'm sure more than one person has experienced. Well done-

    I don't know the answer to this poem, but I do know that - should the sword remain in the stone - the situation seems rather hopeless whichever one you are. Unless someone - like Arthur, perhaps - comes along and frees you.
    Like so many of your works, this is short but intensely captivating.

    All the very best,

    Ben
