THE GRAIL OF EBOR



...beyond the last seas, the last lands and lights,
you were;

… entered my heart as in a fire
and living roses came out to meet me when I said that Elai was your name,
my faith and reason, and my last, my exalted glory;
she carried my drums, my labaros and lances, my strength and triumphs as a badge,
earthly oil,
command and be,
the lineage;

… and nothing was;

… in atriums of silence, under the purest light, on the other side of the blood, lives Love;
here, here is my Camelot, my Excalibur, and, also, my country and queen,
the one that dreams and shines,
my Elai;

… therefore, still outside the walls and pilgrim in the chest,
poor, naked and blind, I am alone;
ah living roses, to that one, to the one who is my soul,
Can you tell her that Ebor is dead and Ebor is calling her, can you?
