Return to Arms by L. M. Mercer


Return to Arms
By: L. M. Mercer

For millennia she has held it waiting,
For the greatness who once was and will be again.
Beneath the cool and murky waters; watching, awaiting his return,
For the time to rise again and place it in his outstretched hand.
He was worthy of its awesome power once before, in the time of ancient lore,
Before the Druids were in this land no more.
Will he be able to return to the mystic shore that he had forsworn,
For a life governed by the church and overrun by sins and penance due?
Can he be deemed worthy to hold the sword once more?
Will he ever reclaim the great Excalibur?

About the Author

Even though she has been writing for some time, L. M. Mercer has never had her work viewed by the public at large. She had mainly used writing as a release for her stressful existence (never intending for others to read her poems), but was badgered into submitting some pieces by friend and coworker, Kevin Magnus, who told her to 'Stop wasting your talent'. While never admitting to him that she is very grateful for his badgering, she will henceforth share with us her talent, both lyrical and oft times somber, now that she is our newest contributor to the "World of Myth".
