in the beckoning midnight vault
of a cold November's nightfall
A communion of life and eternity,
of the universal dark
Above us minds went sailing free

Oh, spark of Creation;

in the eventide of life,
our yesterdays with light
Fire - Earth - Water - Wind
We lived beneath the waning moon of truth
(of Youth)
Like the dark to a dying Flame;
Defiantly blazing the black that awaits

Piercing the fairest of Skies
we see what our history belies
Meadows of Asphodel
Tragedies die among fiery flames

My lightbringer ephemeral
Within the heart of all;
as ever sullied the fair face of light
Whose seeds of life they grind
Paragon of beauty,
We march to the rhythm of the Night
Nightfall by the shore of time,
Swept away with the last of life

the mountainside along
in symbiotic songs:
"Communion... Within the Oversoul

pale shadows of what we'll once be
In life's outer regions I will find
Chanting the odes of Magonia
