Question

Woe betide the bowman’s fate,

A lesson learned, the task to state.

From pole to pole a story told,

A mournful trek through mist and cold

Of one cross born among the dead,

For hope it served, from ice it led

Until his point had made its mark

And spirits pined for vengeance dark.

Now, Purgatory may exist

Above our hell . . . this hall is his.

And casting pall on night of cheer,

One is given the lessoned fear.

for some reason, the first thing that came to mind was the story of Orpheus and Eurydice...But I'm guessing that is incorrect...just getting the ball rolling
