Such a lofty lad
Clad in hue of blue
Brogue and sound
Cast ere frown
Shine on wee clown

Neer say we
How thus be
Kindly watch
Yee yonder sees
Woe is thee

Written down
Beyond thy gown
Gloom does bloom
Knocks too soon
Come hither dragoon

Play and bay
Tombs of clay
Shadows in gray
Gone the day
Oh, mighty wave

Once the proud
Beyond clouds
Weep for thou
Whimpering crowd
Silence the now

Young child be heave
Too soon to believe
Matched to deceive
Left to bleed
Oaths and creeds

Distant apparition
Eternity bound
Hopes abandoned
New to found
In plowed ground

Haunted forest
Soul’s surround
Forsaken minion
Howling hound
Crows abound

Aimlessly wander
Mired in Sloth
Fog and bog
Clawed and gnawed
Crawl behemoth crawl

Plunge to thy depths
Despair unawares
Questions unanswered
Come hither thy lair
Fools all forever declare
