The knights of the circle
Arthur Tale III
The bards run trough the lands.
The new ballads in their hands.
King Arthur is waiting for
World's men of pride,
Them who'll stay by his side,
The knights of honour.
In the name of my king
I'm searching for them:
For the men of the ring,
Of whom the bards sing:
the men of the circle.
the warriors of the world.
for our king they rise
their almighty swords.
the men with religious eyes
who can do every  miracle.
I believe in my king!
Camelot is now rebuilt,
We will stand in the ring!
The Grail will be filled!
The Old Code we will swear.
The Circle will be we.
Excalibur we'll see.
We will defeat today's fear.
The bards help me
To solve my task.
Many knights come to me.
For Arthur they ask.
The bards have sung.
The men have heard.
Full might their hearts.
Their minds are young.
Around the ring we stand.
The Grail goes from hand to hand.
Seats around the circle we took.
Into the centre our swords look.
Trough the halls of stone
Resounds every word

a new beginning - Arthur Tale2
King Arthur is back!
Do you feel the magic of these words?
Not only a sentence, it's a new feeling.
A new beginning for our hopeless world.
In front of our new hope I'm kneeling.
"King, where is Camelot?
King, where is Lancelot?
King, where is Merlin?
King, tell me:
When will I see
Them again?"
But Arthur only smiles at me.
A smile on his lips and
sadness in his eyes.
"You want to see
my gloomy land?"
I hesitate before I rise.
"I've none.
It's all gone."
Into heaven he smiles:
"Camelot forever lies
In the shades of times,
Lives only in the old rhymes."
My heart becomes stone.
What shall now become
Of all my dreams of an endless sun?
Of my hope on his gloomy kingdom?
"Look at me!"
I hear his words and
Look in his blue eyes.
"Gone is my past land,
But an new one will rise!
Believe me!
Camelot will return again.
Merlin will stand by my side.
A new castle made of pride
Will defeat mankind's bloody rain.
Come with me,
Swear the old Code.
And you will see
No more fog."
"My only king! My Lord

The Return - Arthur Tale I
Faithfully I have chosen these endless ways.
Walk them slowly and lonesome for days.
But from the grey heaven constantly falls rain.
It let me think all has been in vain.
In this barren land there's only a grave of stone:
A dilapidated ruin, an old castle's skeleton.
I do not know where I could be.
On world's end it seems to me.
Under an wall – out of my hand – it falls down
The crown of the true king, the one and only.
The grey and endless rain falls on the crown.
And the wet coldness comes also over me.
A silent move in the dark shades
Wakes me up, let me hesitate.
a tall man –
steel blue eyes –
a sword at his side –
with great strength –
his gloomy pride –
i have to rise!
The sword I see…
Could it really be?
In front of me he stands.
I am falling on my knees.
The golden crown in his hands.
The king of the kings I see!
the sword –
he holds –
on his head –
the crown of gold –
in my heart –
two words –

Well, well...
tried a portrait last time and learned that some parents have a really bad view on their child. oÔ I admit, the drawing I made wasn't THAT good ('cause of that I won't post it here), but what the mother of my model said was really, really harsh. No mother should talk that bad about her daughter. I guess, nearly every artist flatters his models when drawing them, but he just draws reality and perhaps makes some wrinkle smaller or something like that. But hearing a mother say, her daughter is fatter - just REALLY fat - when the girl you draw just has round about 5 up to 10 punds "too much" makes you sad. :(
I thought about the criticizm for a long time that her daughter wouldn't look like the portrait, but I compared photos etc. and I can't help, the mother is just a really cruel person I think. :/
Thus I'll continue drawing. ^^ next time my father-in-law is my victim and he has no mother who could talk that cruel about him or his portrait.

Well, my poem hasn't won a prize, but will be published next month. Being one of the best 2000 out of 20.000 is also a good result, I guess. :) And next contest starts in January 2013...

I'm also writing my novells atm. My muse is a bitch, but in the end we always find an agreement.
lot things to do :)
