"The Door "(part 1)

A place where the forgotten still roam free;
of creatures and lands that once used to be.
The doorway to here could be any where;
to a time of myths and legends thought rare.

I see them, playing out along the shore,
four children have just now come through “the door”.
They stand in the shadows of what once had been,
a palace that housed their four thrones within.

They remembered back a thousand years and more
when once before they had come through “the door”.
Peter and Edmund, the great kings of old
with Susan and Lucy, fair queens decked in gold.

Their coming brought an end to the white witch’s reign
and united all Narnia under Aslan once again.
He sat them on Camp Caravelles’ four thrones
and the reign of these kings and queens would be known.

All the land prospered under their generous rule
and unlike the white witch, they were not cruel.
They grew in their wisdom on up through the years
until, while riding their horses, they just disappeared.

While riding deep in the forest they came
to a place remembered as “spare um” by name.
Upon reaching the lamppost, they ran to "the door"
pushing their way through coats, they fell to the floor.

On their return through the wardrobe, they were children again
and their time in Narnia they did not want to end.
But once kings and queens in Narnia, always they would be.
This is what Aslan said in the story that we read. 

         To be continued...........

***From the Disney-Walden Media movies based off “The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe”
and “Prince Caspian” novels written by the great C. S. Lewis***
