The Wizened King

Meet the Wizened King, he will appear in my poetry collection The Tall Man Chronicles.


Those trees who are bravest seek him out for advice,

he is crooked and terrible, once he stood 200ft tall

He sits alone in his field

Split asunder from tree-kind through blood and bitter wisdom.

Shrewd and knowing, they await his final judgement.
