Eternal Fire

		In the land of Long Sojourn
		to the north of No Return
		live Guinevere and Lancelot
		who used to sing and dance a lot
		but now sit on the porch and rock
		and contemplate the handless clock.

		Winter falls in Long Sojourn.
		The fires have all but ceased to burn.
		A single ember blazing hot and
		signifying love forgotten
		warms the lovers as they rock
		then dies as if their love to mock.
