The Flame (For Ninian of Galloway)

A name encased in mystery;
A hero fading from the light;

A life with no-one taking notes;
A set of tales with hazy truths;

A legacy that supercedes
The details of names, concrete dates;

A light within translucent source;
A see that caught some northern souls;

A truth that spread beyond the wall;
A kindled flame, now burning still.
