"The Moon, cast aside To what resolve? 
Fill the sky And burn the statues of old"

"Deer of the forest
Treading lightly on the wind With no leaves to blow"

"Autumn comes and goes
Again, again and again
Till the cycle ends"

"Order of Ember
Flash electric like the skies Where is the thunder?"

"Husk of root and bone
Through time, through walls built to last
Struck hard until sparks"

"Never underestimate
The fallen seed"

"Selfish artist
vicious morpher"
