Forbidden Knowledge Poem by Rod M.Peters

Forbidden Knowledge

Rating: 5.0

Ever will Forbidden Knowledge
Give wings to your mind
But your feet will always bind
To the loneliest rock-ledge.

There will bloom the heather
By country-lanes in a wild spree
But your eyes will only see
Thorn-bushes and harsh weather

The Necromancer will always prey
Upon anyone pushing the veil aside;
A thousand snares he will hide
And the bait will throw your way.

Oh! I like this. I like it standing here alone.... but I sense it could be part of an epic book written in verse telling the tales of olden times and bravery true. I like your word choices - every line has such power....10+++++++

Susan, you are so intuitive! You're not going to believe it, but this verse is part of a long narrative poem that I wrote in Spanish called 'Los Regentes de las Nubes' ('The Regents in the Clouds') comprised of 7 sections each begining with a short verse. Funny enough, only last week our own Bri Edwards and I were talking about long narrative poems because he sent me one he wrote and I mentioned to him that I had one in Spanish that I might translate into English one of these days! So, yes, you are amazing, but I already knew that...
