The Absence Song
2-27-07

The Dragons are all gone, m’lord,
All broken, cold and stone
Their fires have long since burnt out
This world no more their home

The Dragons have all left, m’lord,
Dead, or flown away
But where they’ve gone no one can know
Where they now dwell, no man can say

The Dragons fly no more, m’lord,
Their wings are shattered shards
No more they soar before the moon
Or inspire royal bards

The Dragons be no more, m’lord,
And there is left a hole
Within the air, the waters, stone,
A hollow in the oak-tree’s bole

The Dragons are all gone, m’lord,
Their absence keenly felt
A void is left, unfilled, forgotten
Where splendor once had dwelt

I love the style of this

I love the style of this poem. I wish I could express to you how much I like it, but at this moment in time, I am at a loss for words. All I can say is that it is fantastic!

Deff my fave of hers. I like the first one too, but her third seemed a bit repeditive.
