Historic Grand Saint Graal (Grail) - Poem by ArmourQuill Hunter

Of ancient deeds this Holy Grail my inherent legacy claim
Since finding Joseph of Arimathea, a royal ancestor name
Mighty King Arthur from his line, a far distant cousin, mine
Quests for the Grail shaped lives on history’s pages of time

It’s romance opens with a prologue boldly ascribed to Christ
Telling of Mary’s uncle not needing to ask for his body twice
Only a family member could attain from Pilate that body seen
Joseph scripturally hidden, as Baptist was to Christ, redeemed

John, Christ cousin, never saw Him before his holy baptism day
Nor anything said of the death of Christ’s dad, if he went away
This devout Israelite of the Sanhedrin was released from prison
Incited to build 1st. church of Glastonbury, romancing Briton
Generations of my royals passed on their giftings as with a baton

Traced from David, King of Israel, both sides of Christ’s line
This chalice handed down 5-generations from Joseph, to shine
Nor don’t I think the Rosslyn Templar Chapel houses that cup
Renowned rulers of this line shaped destiny for life’s better sup

Delivered by Vespasian, baptized by Philip, Joseph lived by Grail
Angels led many to Briton, the Grail disappear neath God’s veil
Then Joseph is encaged by Crudel but delivered by Mordrains
Grail keepers descend this line, as Arthur, as victory just grins

    ... in ancient times, you touched me. I'll look at more of your bloody grail cups later - it's late, my meds are kicking in... but this was a gorgeous work. I just had to post a comment. (Report) Reply
