Return To Tara - Poem by Steve Downes

There is no return of the Kings
the sun will never travel from west to east
the Augur will never see the blackbirds
fly backward across a windswept hill
in Meath
under a cold Irish summer
standing alone exposed to the elements
upon the immortal mound that keeps
no hostages only memories and ghosts
one and the same to me now
over the halfway mark in life and
still their chill
and whisper
make me smile
even if it were all to end too soon
and it always ends too soon
some days were worth the mortality
