An update to the sad secret verse from old Deep Roots, Tabitha’s fiercest bodyguard. This didn’t find a place in Sky Queen, but it will make an appearance in Ghost.
The dark blue fury of storm-skies has left me;
I long for the perfume of struck sharpened glass.
No more the ice-blossom, nor the mothbirds’ song;
I pray to see Sacred Mountain again.
But the silver dawn brings deeper wisdom;
All that I long for lies within.
I must light Fierce-Hope in all others;
I will build Sacred Mountain anew.
