When legends die
The Fairies dance beneath the silvered moon,
To the music of eternity.
A castle floats beyond the endless mists,
Existing just beyond mortal sights.
A sword stuck in stone, the right to rule.
A dragon fierce and strong, a missing sheep or three
Of magic, dark and light, a battle for the soul
Of fire light and dreams, the adventure that starts with that one step
 
Legends are born, and legends die.
Man's undeniable thirst for knowledge, for answers, for truth,
Pierces the veil of mystery, parts the mists of Myth
What is left is the cold hard light of logic and the disapointment of reality
Sometimes the questions are more important than the answers
Man needs more than truth and answers
He needs myth, romance, legends and mystery.
He needs the questions, the dreams, the illusions of things Unknown
The monster in the Dark, so to speak.
 
So when the last great Mystery is tamed
What then will Man have to dream of?
When all answers are found, When all puzzles have solutions
What then when all myths are dead and gone,
Will Man's spirit have to pine for?
When legends die?

Nice work asking great questions -- and you're right, its better to ask the right questions than to have the right answers to the wrong questions...  and love overcomes reason and myth is stronger than reality.  It may surprise you, but I brought up many of the same thoughts and questions in my poem "The Race".  I guess great minds think alike.  Your flow was smooth and thoughts poignant.  Super poem.    Tristan

Man needs more than truth and answers

He needs myth, romance, legends and mystery.

 

 

So wise, little buddy...The thing about facts and figures is.....they explain the reason for not a damned thing.. I think the prersence of God is always with us, even though we haven't the faintest idea of what God really is....The eternal mystery is needed to make inspiration possible....len
