DEFEND THE NEW DAY
Striding outward from the darkness
Did the mage-born traveler come
With no rushing sound of fanfare
Nor any roll of tight-skinned drum.
As the late-night stars unfolded
So too did the tale he told
And as I listened and responded
Deeply struck the chilling cold:
From the darkness all alone, friend
Had the traveler shielded self
With the aid of but one other
Who lives near the cloud's home shelf.
So we learn of other wanderers
As we pass down through the years
Thus we learn of others' troubles
And we face yet other fears.
Outside, the darkness gathers
While within we hoard the light
Every step must be completed
Ere we dare unveil our Sight.
It is now we must ingather
All the strength that we may hold
For the future rushes on us
And we can't be less than bold.
Soon shall we hear the trump of challenge
From the towers darkling gray
It is then that we must answer
So defending the new day....
