Living History in RoG

Mannan’s Castle (acrostic)

Mannan’s Castle (acrostic)

Mannan’s wealth in cold dark waters sunk,

Ancient gold, hidden deep.

Never to be found,

Never to be moved, but by four snowy white steeds that

Alone were prophesied to raise the hoard.

Night-time visit by treasure-seekers.

Searching the depths

Chains, they found there….pull… pull…pull…

And at the last second the chain snapped. Who to blame? Look… it?…yes…a…

Single black hair, marring the perfection of a stallion’s back.

Treasure abandoned,

Left to the depths to feed an

Eternity of stories.
