Thank-You, Lady Death.  Such comment from you makes me all a-glow inside (necromantically speaking, of course.... it's kind of a reddish, blueish, purpleish all a-glow). :color:

Hey, Darkus.  That's some good stuff you have here.  Why have you never posted before?

Um, fear of rejection and a firm belief in my stupidity, I think.
Glad you're back, Azothoth.

You're about as far from stupid as you can get, Darkus.  Your poetry is brilliant, and your posts show there are roads to other worlds than most people deny exist.  (I know better.  I think most Westgaters do.)

It is a saying, Ravensong, that there are no coincidences....
that being said, I find it interesting that you have been enthralled with the White Tower and its history.....and that I chose the White Tower and the legend of its Ravens to dedicate my chant to you.... my source is a book on occult Britain that I bought in London, England in April of 1977.  Here's to hoping that I got the story right.... :beer:

Now where did i put that book???? :banghead:

OK Ravensong, here we go.... I am wary of another Rainbow Harvest/Winona Ryder repeat ( see "Dark Films" for an understanding of this ) so here are the 'facts' that the legend of the Ravens, and my chant dedicated to you, is based upon:

  " The four-turreted White Tower, built by William the Conqueror, stands on the ancient Bryn Gwyn, or White Mound under which the head of the ancient Celtic god Bran is buried.
  In the old Welsh legends Bran is known as Bendigeidfran, or 'Blessed Raven'.  After being mortally wounded at his final fatal battle, he tells his seven- the number I mentioned in my comment to your poetry in 'Necromantic Verse'- remaining followers to cut off his head, take it to London and bury it under the White Mound.
  The Raven, which in Celtic Mythology has always been regarded as prophetic, can still be found around the White Mound.  The Story is that destruction will come to London (and by my extrapolation, to Britain) if the Ravens ever leave; thus, the glossy black birds are regularly replenished from different parts of England.  They stand on the grass outside the Tower, rarely moving and apparently showing no inclination to fly away."  I suspect, Ravensong, that those birds are well fed by the Beefeater Guard and have had their wings clipped, but I don't know that for sure.  At any rate, I am sure that Your wings have not been clipped, nor will they ever be. :rose:

Morgan, your comments as regards my work was a very, very kind thing for you to say..... my self-esteem really needed a boost-but I promise not to let it go to my head.  Because of what you said, when you said it, I have resolved to try even harder to achieve literary continuity.... as for myself, I could not help but notice TDC's expertise.... and once again am impressed with the calibre of workmanship contributed to this forum..... this place is beginning to explode with talent!!!
Once again, thank-you for what you said. :rose:

When I was in London, darkus, I visited the Tower, and found out that, sadly, they do clip the wings of the ravens. :shake:

even where Persephone goes, just now, from the frosted September
to the sightless realm where darkness was awake upon the dark
