giada-rose:

Return of the Mari Lwyd (2020)

“For She knows all from the birth of the Flood 

To this moment where we stand
In a terrible frost that binds the blood 

In a cramp that claws the hand. 

Give us rhyme for rhyme through the wood of the door 

Then open the door if you fail.

 Our wit is come from the seawave’s roar, 

The stars, and the stinging hail.”

-Vernon Watkins
