i've seen the stars move

i've felt the earth shift

laughed at the beat of beasts' hooves

heard the eagle's wing lift

i've trekked over seas

and swam desert sand

i've sat on a breeze

and drank the dry land

i've watched from my clouds

and seen all your sins

and keening aloud

i mourn you and your kin

lost to the dark

and deep underground

no song of the lark

nor any sweet sound

can reach your doomed ears

or sing you to sleep

forget your old fears

you've new ones to keep
