The Chalice Well, Glastonbury

 

Old Magic

Does Merlin wait close by the great tower of Avalon

Where Arthur sleeps waiting to be called

To save us all from holy hell.

Healing waters close by, where many go in search of blessings

Does the holy cup lie beneath the Chalice Well?

Will the truth of these long-loved stories ever be known?

Fantasy, legend, who can tell?

Stand on the broken castle wall of Tintagel

Feel the old man of the woods, his power dancing in the breeze.

A touch from centuries gone.

You may walk home feeling two or three inches taller.

That’s the magic of a long-loved story

Medicine for the soul…
