Warrior Queen

A Poem by Neville
"

sudden inspiration and a need to exercise my new eyes..

"

Warrior Queen


When I was a shadow

And

Before I was a man

Wars

Could be won with

A single shower of

Singing arrows and

A solitary song

Twas then my queen

She

Did wear a robe of live

Green dancing finches

Each one held together

By a thousand

Silver bows

But that was yesterday

When time it was

Yet still golden

And tomorrow

As you know well

Never comes

But leaves us young …

This is a beautiful tribute to a warrior heart. I was thinking of Walking Queen when I saw your title, then clicked & here's she's the first to review! Love your totally unique imagery to show how one can be both broken & still sporting an irresistible plume of finery (((YOW))) fondly, Margie

The land of moving backwards until we arrive at the most perfect version of ourselves. This feels very Narnian to me. I do have two kids, so I can be forgiven for that train of thought, I hope. But, the heroics and purity. The ability to move through time unimpeded. These things are beautiful.

I am enchanted, also, by that robe of green dancing finches. What finery could compare. This one has my imagination gears spinning. I love when that happens.

I’m so glad your eyes are mending and you’re finding yourself better able to be here, Neville. Nice to read more of your lovely poems. All good things to you, my friend.

20/20 vision on this one, good old NHS, or wuz you went private.

Wars nowadays are won more I think, by the showers of bullshit that spew from political mouths, rather than a shower of arrows.

'Me, gas my own people, of course not, I'm a really nice guy, I mean, I wear ARMANI SUITS! And as for the unfounded rumours that my best friend Vladimir from Russia is bombing hospitals on purpose, nothing but fake news put out by the Americans who want to steal my oil!

That was a party political broadcast on behalf of Bashar al-Assad, the great and benevolent leader of Syria.

'. wear a robe of live - Green dancing finches - Each one held together - By a thousand - Silver bows..'

Methinks we can select our own meaning for your gently falling words. Can opt for the once upon a time fact or fiction. Or, by the light of early morning, interpret YOUR mix and match of one women's glorious traits or an amalgam of many. Whilst the ending seems to slide into a sadness, there's that emotion of life travelling on, clinging on with smiling memories! You never miss a trick when you write from the heart!

Queen of the Iceni, Boudicca is where I travelled here. A warrior heart if ever there was one. Taking on the Roman invaders. Fearless woman, one to remember when you are looking for courage. Standing out from the crowd and not cowering to injustice. Lovely poem Neville. I sincerely hope your op has given you some hope. All good wishes.

What we were and what we are now, once we lived and seen enough to show us that what we see and what we are told rarely equate to the same thing, usually thanks to those we trust enough to know they see it too. The more years that pass and the more s**t we see, makes warriors of us all, to fight fir a tomorrow that makes sense and having the back of others that have yours.
Or it could be about a young lad playing war, trying to save the fair maiden.
Really like the ending, positive of having something/one tolook forward to.
Well done Nev. Proof your eyes are in fine fettle and can see clearly how fecked up things are these days.

Has the sound of an old Celtic or Arthurian legend, but it could be just the yearning for lost youth. It plays well either way.
