Three Colours Trilogy challenge

Red, White and Gold

1. Blood and Fire

Red upon the blades Shining as sun lit ruby Spilled upon the ground Pale swans burn, sinking Their red light a beacon bright To mark the passing The sea is crimson Washing this sin from the shore Flowing ‘bout their feet They fight to the last The silver elves of the Sea Their blue cloaks red stain’d The mothers cry out Clasping their little ones tight Their swaddlings red soaked Where are the white ships? Their masts are hewn and splintered Decks scarlet and slick What foul deed is this That turns brother on brother And turns red the sea
