The Longbow Archer

“Laws of the land enslave our people”

                                                     -Robin Hood

Sunlight glances off the flint tip
As justice swims through the air

The belly of the bow stave
Carved in yew

Whose nock, twined in hemp
Bonded in beeswax
Burns with the passion of man

Forged in the forest
Practiced on the buckle

Freedom flies true


                                               Flies true
