A Dirge for the Elders

Dr. Rinaldi's Horror Cabinet

in silence
as the Elder Druid walked the circuit,
studying what remained of time’s gods.

No more the fragrance of the sacred flowers.
No more the speech of wisdom’s love and fire.
The Sacred Groves are no more, no more:
and we the living are now dead with them,
blackened by the night in a broken world
of the mistborn tribes who have all fallen.
This, this alone, was our last grove,
