Blind Elder Poem by William Kofoed

Blind Elder



Spoke by the blind Elder By the fire

Hear the tale of The Lord of the Night
Long ago when I was young
There was the time when The Lord of the Night
Tried to steal The Lord of the Day's light
I did watch as he did
Sneaking up on him from behind
Closer and closer most carefully
Thinking He that he would catch
The Lord of the Day and cover and take He's light away
Then will I The Lord of the Night
Will be greater than he and will rule the world
So I watched him steal up
Grab The Lord of the Day from behind
Cover him over and take his light
And I thought that he had won
Defeated the Lord and taken his light

But The Lord of the Day still fought
And threw him off and kept his light
And I did laugh as The Lord of the Night ran
And he heard me from in the sky
So thought he I will show that man
Who laughs at me in my lost
And in the night as I Sept
The Lord of the Night came to my bed
And took my sight with which I had saw
That would never see again
And never since seen the Lord of the Day again
So dear children said he
You must never look on him
The Lord of the Night when he tries again
Or he will come and take your sight too
