"Tales"

 

We told our tales as we sat under

Morning's sleepy sky

With all the colours of the sunrise

Shining in our eyes.



One, then another, with a story of yesterday's lives

Or of a lover who had gone in a

Moment of strife.



No thought of sleep ever dwells upon

The wise man's mind

Some task or audience stealing every

Moment of his time.



Thus we have learned to live

While mortal men stand waiting to die.

How can we do what must be done in

Just one short life.



And if you ask, then you must know.

If you still doubt, you should be told.

It was not we that made it so.

It was by those who went before.



And there you sit, tomorrow's child

So full of love, so full of life

But you must rise to meet the day

Lest you become another tale



And there you sit, tomorrow's child

So full of love, so full of life

But you must rise to meet the day

Lest you become another tale



Another tale, another tale

Another tale
