The Task (poem)

He rises yet again to meet his task

He knows today the tip of destiny

What purpose served the winds and stars do ask

Somewhere another lover waits for me

-

So out to risk a world so full of doubt

Where people hide behind their chosen truth

And carry poison in the way they shout

At one who brings some comfort to a youth

-

And there she dreams her future full hope

Upon her bed reality of dread

But with his touch a chance to help her cope

A kiss of magic to the day she’s wed

-

A peasant bride whose day the truth defies

Enjoys a day which all true loves are due

Yet somewhere from a poison fairy dies

While watching two young lovers’ wish comes true

Music only
