Return To Tara

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
