First Line: Alone, unarmed, the dragon king must go
Last Line: High in his mighty grasp the star-rimmed bowl.
Subject(s): Great Britain - History; English History


Alone, unarmed, the Dragon King must go
To seek the Cauldron by a magic shore,
For gleaming harness wrought of wizard ore
Is powerless against an unknown foe;
The lonely Caer, walled with the flaming Bow,
Lifts dark enchanted horns where wild seas roar,
And in the moon's white path a mystic door
Moves to strange music only Merlins know.

Within, vast shapes and awful shadows start,
While deathless gods who hold the wave-worn stairs
Do ghostly battle with a hero's soul;
But at his eagle cry their thonged shields part,
And from the cloven fire the Chieftain bears
High in his mighty grasp the star-rimmed Bowl.
