The wizard the war the dragon the pearl

Combing the land for days
She stood with his talisman
catching breath along the way
reflecting upon Her grandmothers words
the wizard the war the dragon and the pearl
She had spun through the fabric
so many times like a hurricane through the trees
a memory for each rotation needles for the yarn
when meeting the wizard first She was but a young lass
he gave her an amulet forged from sorcery magic in craft
explaining its was to help with the meddle of men
whom they were and mischief's eternal protection
She saw in him the strain of times tide
how it washed his face and broke upon his stride
swearing to herself never to crest upon such a beach
stroking the land when one can no longer see
His eyes were of pearl, smoke and reason
through which he stared Her sure and even
leaning on his staff heavily
that was cut as a dragons folded wings
he prophesized Her to a wandering life
what fires You shall conjure
and boiling's in Your cauldron
shall be the purpose to winning the war
this too shall be carried on
from offspring to no end
for as long as the talisman
adorns the precious kin
pass the prophecy
and be on thy way
for now Your war begins
She thought She had seen enough horror already
the blood of the land and the useless in man
but she tied the talisman around Her neck
forging on contemplating next
years later after folly and fears
came upon a man whom She could love for the years
bore him a Daughter who's life was a double
smiling to Her life as a grandDaughter was borne
She doted and played till Her eyes had turned grey
telling the tale of magic and destiny
upon nights He came speaking in Her dream
wisdoms and secrets that She tried to convey
till the night claimed Her forever from walking the earth
when next day sun came
a grand daughter combed
looking the land
for secrets and life of old
