Presence


Dolan Madoc of Harlech            



Chorus:
But tell me when, if as I ken,
His presence lingers on,
As we take the line and our arrows fly
Is he ever really gone?

Verse 1:
Some time ago, a man I know
Would travel far and wide
A marshal's book and a range he took
To each and every site.

Chidiock the Younger brought with him
A gift for Calontir
The joy we know, when lift our bows
Flows from all that he did here.

Verse 2:
In ancient days, the sagas say
Lived an archer of renown
From Thousand Hills with mighty skill
Who would wear the Calon crown

Twas Zenobia of Rebelswood
Of her legend you have heard
How a lady fair and an archer rare
Showed us wisdom with her words

Verse 3:
I can see him stand, with bow in hand
An eye both keen and true
A giant of a man, from southern lands
His skill was matched by few

Bear was known for an arrow thrown
And the Knowne World can attest
Champion of all, but as I recall
Twas his smile I liked best

Verse 4:
So oft it seems, in life I deem
We're measured by our skill
Far better though, if we could know
The weight of heart and will

Though distance fair and life's despair
Keep him far from Calon home
Brave Owen calls us brothers all
And we claim him for our own.

Verse 5:
From Three Rivers land comes many a man
Who would fight for land and king
Some seek the skies where the arrows fly
And you hear the bowstring sing.

Where hearts were glad and fun was had
Christoval could be found there
I can still recall, how he brought to all
This passion that we share.
