You came into my city's walls,
And shone despite your wounded state,
And soon you echoed through my halls,
And offered me the hand of fate.

You told me of your foreign lands,
And tugged me gently toward their shore.
Pulled me past the burning sands
Into the thirsty ocean's roar.

And so we sailed towards glooming night,
Star-eyed and dreaming, hearts entwined
Each drunken in the others sight,
Each full of hopes and danger blind.

And now the dark has finally come
But left us with the quiet stars.
No more the heat of glowing sun,
But silvered beauty now is ours.

Which softly sings of coming dawn,
And greater things than light soaked noon
And whispers why all hearts are drawn
To dance beneath the fickle moon

So once again I raise the flask
And knowing, drink the lover's brew
And toast to what my love would ask
And give my will to cleave to you.
If you don't know the story of Tristram and Isolde, you should.

Dont know the story, but who cares so long as it produced a beautiful poem like this.
Unusual rhyming scheme, and difficult to maintain without losing the sense, but you made it work. One of the best I've ever read. Just loved it. :clap:
