Have you seen the way trees turn white when the wind whispers news?
The way the swollen clouds turn darker shades of heavy blues?
And have you noticed the silence of bird-folk amongst giants?
Heavy in their weigh, they are learned of compliance.
And have you seen the way he takes sun from the sky, and brings it to the ground?
Shattering the oaken, and cracking the sound?
Have you felt the tears of the ocean against you?
The giant orphaning each drop that it wields to beset you?
And have you found the death of the eldest riverbed?
Shifting rock and root, for a crack at your head!
But perhaps you’ve seen through to other days?
Where wrath is forgiven, and the sun shine stays.
