Arthur's legendary castle in Cornwall.

King Arthur and Tintagel Castle

by Nosha17

Majestically poised on the cliffs, the sea below,
Ghostly ruins of Tintagel, cloaked in mystery.
Climbing the winding stone steps, my heart is aglow;
I'm transfixed by the magic of its history.

King Arthur, renowned legendary knight of yore
Showed his valour and courageous spirit to all.
With every step, I'm captivated and in awe,
The magic of Tintagel has me in its thrall.

Dreamlike images of battle and Merlin's cave
Appear and disappear, as the Cornish mists swell.
Here at Tintagel castle, site of Arthur's grave,
Knights in armour have cast their enigmatic spell.


I walked round the ruins of this castle at Tintagel in a daze it was so wonderful. You can even climb down and walk inside Merlin's cave!
