I am a creature of the forest

I am a creature of the forest

I am her winding mossy ways

I am the rain that leaves no shelter

I am the ending of the days

I am the bird that flies above

I am the dead that rots below

I am the raven and the crow

Who know much you do not know.

Listen to my ways;

I will show you all you need to sow

A new world from ancient ken

A dragon’s lair, a lion’s den

Must be the challenge you will face

Before I lead you forth in grace

For nothing in this world is free

Except the marvel that is me.

Listen to my ways;

And do not doubt, what the path is all about

For only he who bests the trial

Can know the fear and the denial

That knowing all would bring about –

Therefore wait, and fight and shout

Offer all you are, brave one

Or be slain, and then be gone.

And when the long night is over

When the morning dawns sober

Cold light on your tattered soul

Bearing forth the gifts of old

All the people will clap their hands

The new king come to save the land –

But forget not that it was I

That showed you how, that let you fly.

I am a creature of the forest

I am her winding mossy ways

I am the rain that leaves no shelter

I am the ending of the days

I am the bird that flies above

I am the dead that rots below

I am the raven and the crow

Who know much you do not know.
