The Peace Where Shadows Are

There was a man who dreamt
Where sunless rivers weep
Dark turmoil of the World
For twilight cold and lorn
Lives in the Courtyard of Immortality
He hid his secret, dared not tell it abroad
So that no pain shall wake
A night no morn shall break
Rest, rest, forevermore
In the empty mountains
To come one with the dust and dirt of the hill
And time shall cease the striving of mortal men
Long past withered and decayed, half way to Heaven
