Jera

*

… As Merlin prepared to leave once more

for the wild woods of Caledonia

his sister, Ganieda, attempted to dissuade him

arguing that it would make more sense

to winter within the city and return to the woods in spring.

*

“I could live in the forest the whole year through

if only I had an abode in the woods which

would afford me shelter and respite from the winter.”

*

So saying Merlin went his way into the wild,

whilst Ganieda saw to it that his wish was granted.

*

She had built for him an observatory of the night sky,

on the edge of the forest, and furnished it with the

wherewithal to withstand the harshest of winters.

*

During the summer months Merlin wandered alone

in the forest but in winter he retired to his

observatory and there watched the heavens

and made prophecies concerning the affairs of men.
