I met a man

I met a man
upon a road
brimmed hat hid his face
old and grey
curiously spry
a twinkle in the left eye

I met a man
we talked for hours
of war and peace
politics and law
of curious lore
and times before

I met a man
cloaked in grey
he reminded me
of gods and heroes
giants and beasts
halls filled with feasts

I met a man
carrying a staff
carved with unknown
letters -- perhaps runes
when closely I peer
it's actually a spear

I met a man
who spoke of magic
a price of lore
paid willingly
for new skills
himself he'd kill'd

I met a man
and walk with him still
