In times of old many people believed in these Seerers. Kings would call them in and ask for their advice.




Come closer let me see what I can see

Drink your cup of tea

And bring the empty cup to me


Let me take your hand

And gaze at the lines

That time has aged

Let me look into your life

And the times it has raged


The cards tell me that

You are shrouded in fear

They say that you have

Shed many a tear


But look to the future now

Instead of the past

Your unhappiness

Is not bound to last


There is a brighter day dawning

Full of happiness and cheer

Take a look now

You have nothing to fear


I see people surrounding you

Full of fondness and love

Flying around you a

Beautiful white dove


Comfort and happiness

Money to spare

Just enough wealth

So you don’t have a care






But a word of caution

I must say to you here

All will be taken from you

If in this life you don’t share


There are those that you know

Have need of your time

Your patience and wisdom

In their upward climb


Your friendship and understanding 

As they try to find their way

Your support and love

Form day to day


The moon and the stars

Are all in your favor

Enjoy all you have

Your happiness savor


Heed my words young one

Do not stray from this path

Or you will unleash 

The universes rath


The heavens will fall upon you

Make no mistake

This warning I give to you

For thyne own sake


Take joy in what is yours

Do not take from your brothers

Share all you have and

Do good unto others



If you heed this I tell you

You should have no fear

You will be blessed

For many a year

I believe this 'seerer' has wise words for all of us, not just Kings past in times of old. Well done! ~Hugs, Elizabeth

Oh what a fantastic write and reminds me of the days of soothsayers and wizards, when anything seemed possible....

Be always safe,

Wise words and a lovely poem.
Reviewed by Felix Perry 8/3/2010
Very well told and yes I have read a lot on these subjects and they are in almost all cultures, some used runes (small stones) others tiles and some even bones but all seemed well respected in their communities.

I remember my mother reading tea leaves for her friends. She always gave a glowing account to them and I guess that's why she had so many friends. Good one Kathleen.
