The Bird Song of the Wayreth Forest (Reprise)

From DragonLance Legends Volume 3 (pages 48-49)
Novel by Margaret Weis & Tracy Hickman
Poetry by Michael Williams

Song of larks:
    The light in the eastern skies
    Is still and always morning,
    It alters the renewing air
    Into belief and yearning.

    And larks rise up like angels,
    Like angels larks ascend
    From sunlit grass as bright as gems
    Into the cradling wind.

Song of ravens:
    The plain light in the east
    Contrives out of the dark
    The machinery of day
    The diminished song of the lark.

    But the ravens ride the night
    And the darkness west,
    The wing beat of their hearts
    Large in a buried nest.

Song of owls:
    Through night the season ride into the dark,
    The years surrender in the changing lights,
    The breath turns vacant on the dusk or dawn
    Between the abstract days and nights.
    For there is always corpselight in the fields
    And corposants above the slaughterhouse,
    And at deep noon the shadowy vallenwoods
    Are bright at the topmost boughs.
