The Castle - Poem by Brandon Owens

You called for me to come
So I set out for your home
The place was some distance
It took time and persistence
When I finally arrived
It was sunrise the next day
The morning lit the horizon
To my wide eyed surprise
There was a castle upon it
I stood in wonder, amazed
The gates were adorned with gold
The walls and battlements
Formed a magnificent stronghold
I stopped on the other side
Across the dangerous moat
Waiting for the drawbridge
For someone to let me in
When I had sat a short spell
I tried to cast my voice and hail
But it was to no avail
There was no movement
Not on the walls or in the towers
No face to smile nor to glower
The castle was lonely on this hill
The Deserted and Abandoned
Magnificent, but quiet and still
What a place my friend has built
Long ago was my last visit
Even then you were quite the hermit
But this was simply wondrous
All caged in, locked up tight
By yourself I knew, you'd be alright
Was this what you wanted me to see?
I turned and left, to leave you be
