a study

she sits alone

with the tomes

poring over the wisdom of ancients

of olden ways

in these maudlin days

she knows it’s nothing that hasn’t been seen before

with fervored brow

she soaks up how

heroes bygone defeated the greatest of foe

she shuts it tight

turns out the light

tomorrow she’ll put her studies to test

  1. This is a really cool idea. I’m in love with the concept of someone having to pore over ancient text to prepare for a battle – it’s just so awesome! I model some of my writing based around this idea, too!
