The Castle

High upon a jagged cliff
A castle slowly crumbling
Long harsh years have taken their toll
Now it’s stones are tumbling
The walls are lashed with wind and rain
The cliffs are giving way
A beautiful place that stood once proud
Has sadly had it’s day
Stories were written within its walls
Words that were filled with horror
About an evil vampire prince
That would fill your heart with terror
He stalked the castle halls at night
And crept around the grounds
He’d sit in the tallest tower
Scaring everyone around
Now the stories are legend
Legend soon becomes myth
Eventually they disappear
Like the castle on the cliff


Slains Castle, Aberdeenshire, Scotland. Where they say Dracula was written.
