Whispers from the Wilderness

On the banks of the dark river
Stand the dreaming sentinels,
Ancient, seeming immutable guardians.

Down there, in the roots of the trees,
Caught in the gnarled sinews,
Are memories of times past,

Waiting patiently in the shallows
Till called to break gently
The silence of the country.

Walk closer, tread carefully,
Hear the soft murmurings
Of long ago voices speaking softly.

Quietly they rise through the mists,
Whispers of then, threads of pain
Woven through strands of love,

Telling the tales of the people,
Stories of the land,
Holding all to all.
