The castle
Defences surround a tall stone keep
Archers stand ready at the outer wall
Standing by to repel any attacker
Heavy gates stay closed

Inside the walls
Long halls filled with priceless treasures
Lush gardens filled with growth
Quiet alleyways to escape and hide
Nothing moves all is still

A large stone keep stands silent
A frightened lady sits in the great hall
The dungon cells locking unwanted memories away from view
Keys lost to only her
A castle, always cold, always silent.
