And so from Xanadu the mighty Kublai Khan might decree
but did he ever make out with the goddess Aphrodite?
Dracul Van Helsing thought while returning from Athens
and attending service of Glastonbury Abbey matins
among those ancient ruins
far from desert sand dunes.

The Welsh Vampiress Morgana visited Dracul
a break from campaigning against a werewolf fool
in the constituency of Newbridge in Wales
principality ruled by Charles Prince of Tails

Now this vampiress was a niece of Morgan Le Fay
for this vamp had been around since medieval day
and she told Dracul that he was descended from both Morgan Le Fay and King Arthur
making Dracul a king and not just a knight with a knighthood to be called “Sir”

For her aunt the sorceress Morgana and Arthur had another child besides Mordred
the one who at the battle of Camlann both he and Arthur mortally bled
this child was a girl sent to Ireland for safekeeping
as Camelot was overrun by blood and weeping

And Dracul was descended from this princess royal
who was born Morgan and Arthur’s child on Avalon soil

And so after hearing this from Morgana, he wandered far from Glastonbury Tor
this vampiric news that had him hit the ceiling and not the royal floor
he wandered across plains and through trees seeing a doe and her fawn
then he looked and saw the mists of Avalon rising through the dawn

Avalon Rising In The Mists of Dawn

He had once pulled a sword out of a stone in Cornwall many years ago
and now it looked like prophecy would unfold- Avalon’s rising- ’tis so.

    Passing by quite some catches of history here… Cool!

    What an intriguing poem. It’s very well written I must say and one I enjoyed sinking my teeth into.

    Thank you for visiting and following into the shadows of my site.

    • Dracul Van Helsing said,

      Thank you very much. πŸ™‚

      And you’re welcome. I very much enjoyed reading some of your posts. I’m quite into vintage myself- vintage cars, vintage movies, vintage ads, vintage comic books, vintage magazines.

      • Madame Vintage said,

        That is wonderful to hear. You must be a very sophisticated Dracula, much like the pages in one of my favourite novel. ☺

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        I’m very much into classic movies (I love TCM and very much miss Robert Osbourne) and love classic books.

        I sort of feel like a combination of Raymond Chandler’s Philip Marlowe, Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes, Jane Austen’s Mr. Darcy and a castle or great estate owning hero in a 19th Century Gothic novel. πŸ™‚

      • Madame Vintage said,

        Now that is a great combination to feel inspired to be. I must say..The noir era where the hardboiled fiction stories were set with a mystery crime thriller is what I admire most about the vintage era so notably when I had first read The Big Sleep by Chandler I just fell in love with Marlowe’a character. That suave and witty humour doesn’t go unnoticed and it’s what I admire. ☺

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        Yes, it’s Marlowe’s suave and witty humour that I aspire to. πŸ™‚
