Sammiscribbles weekend writing prompt #234 “At the edge of the world”

I’m reluctant to leave my seat by the fire

on the Northern boundary of our Empire

I go to the edge of the wall and look down

seeing the glint of the frost on the ground

the night is so dark, the weather most foul

far in the distance I can hear the wolves howl

or maybe another of the wild beasts

but probably the natives just having a feast

  1. It’s probably just the natives having a feast. I’m taking this to be a Roman soldier posted on Hadrian Wall
