Unseen voices; flaming bagpipes in the
Distance singing songs of love, loss, and hope;
Human treasures lost, not in a black hole,
But within the pale of reverie's ruin.
O! Weary traveler at pseudo-Death's door,
Moments paid with cost of woe, listen clear,
We beckon; the road to Life seems futile,
But near is the presence that seems so far!
A measure of the tryst betwixt us is
Fettered wire candled by stars in the dark.
Let airy voice rebuke shame and shatter
Self-hatred with cosmic embrace. Hear our
Echoes of fire and wind through lush, still hills;
Upon our shoulder, you'll always find Home.
