REX ETERNUS




Who is this King named Arthur
Nephew of Ambrosius
Son of Uther
Child of the Dragon
How is it we deserve him
How is it that we earned his days
From when Britons were saved
From the Saxon’s wave
How is it that we are safe
Watched over by the King
When we were causeless
Unable to defend
What we didn’t understand
Arthur is the King
But more than any man
He is generous
And good
And beyond earthly measure
We are his own kin
And children
But he will return
When we are long made dust
For his reign is eternal
He waits for our children’s distant kin
Their generation
For the moment
He is our King
Again
As he is Rex Eternus
