Caladur: Face to Face…

*

…Ewan climbed the open wold and the boy

climbed with him, though they spoke no word…

*

At the height of the slope Ewan turned,

to look down upon the realm of Fulnay;

appearing small and clear in the mid-day sun,

it looked like it lay in a past time.

*

Down the broad trackway which ran to it,

the dust was rising like smoke,

and within the dust clouds,

a great company rode two, by two.

*

The Lords with their appointed business were arriving…

*

Ewan turned, and ran quickly, out of sight, over the high ridge.

Once there he collapsed, in the long grass, and lay laughing.

The strange, green-clad child lay laughing with him.
