A Forgotten Shrine

at then end of the long winding down
there is a shady groove renown
falling autumn leaves crisp and brown
feel of the breezy air is all around

beside the shady autumn groove
weathering the ages is a proven shrine
beneath the cloven bark weevils dine
without even a gush, silent shades move

standing guard through the endless ages
a shrine where inscribed within are tales of esteem
as even memories faded within the stone pages
shadow faced shades yearn for their lost redeem

fables to be recited in full born pride
but tales long ago forgotten by bards
are inscribed on stone plates inside
much of them are in ruined shards

along the walls of the crumbling shrine
vines of ivy root and blossoms bloom
even as sunlight weakly shine
carved by ages is a shady gloom

never shall a bard tread the winding down
never shall they grace the ivy stone walls
in a willed search for lost fables of renown
because only shades wait as time falls
