Rhyme of the Kingdom

Over the mountains

and down to the sea,

you must come now

if you hope to break free.

No time to mourn

for Autumn’s red bowers;

the light we once made,

now darkness devours.

I can play you

the rhymes of the kingdom,

I can sing you

the songs that you know;

but we must take wing

from this darkened halo –

we must take wing

for a devil wind blows.

Break from your prison

of urban malaise;

run to the ocean,

fly from your home.

I can’t promise you

that we’ll make it –

but take my hand

and I’ll never let go.

look around!
