"Swan Songs"
Lyrics mournfully written by birds
burdened with sorrow
wailing mothers
of newly born hatchlings
lost at birth

lamentations to roam the moors' moonlight
traveling far away
beyond the edge of the earth
to galaxies far off
yet still within clear sight

Why did you leave them unattended
and of defense, by no means intended
surely the challenge thee so dared
posed acceptance of one prepared

as owls and ravens
who stalk the shades and shadows
constant in-flight o'er haunted hills
and gory gallows

Oh worry! be not yours
my wroth and wearied friend
now a companion of thee_
forever to be condemned
shamed and scorned in full life
against thy plans
suffering deeds, done in folly
by thine own hands

faith by wisdom is not the cause,
I assure you this
only foolish ignorance foils truth,
peace, and bliss

thou hast mine sincere saving grace
for in thy mirror,
a shrouded shaded face
