a song written for one of my Dungeons & Dragons campaign settings

a lamentation for Thualdir, the King of the Gods, who turned away from the world to mourn the betrayal of his creations

A Song for the Rueful King

Upon the sea in frosted swell,

Upon the sea in frosted swell, An emerald isle, the Gods now dwell.

In golden halls with brilliant light,

In golden halls with brilliant light, And precious jewels all shining bright.

In crystal lamps the beauty glows,

In crystal lamps the beauty glows, Hierafel, its grace now shows.

Hidden from Man and all the world;

Hidden from Man and all the world; A blossom yet to be unfurled.

The world is cruel and grey as stone,

The world is cruel and grey as stone, Through cold and hate, they go alone.

In shadow here, in shade of night,

In shadow here, in shade of night, A sorrow reigns and takes its flight.

Joeana calls from pearly sands:

Joeana calls from pearly sands: A song of loss across all lands.

A heavy heart cries in her chest,

A heavy heart cries in her chest, She shall not sleep; she shall not rest.

Upon the edge, the Pillars fall,

Upon the edge, the Pillars fall, The Children weep and heed the call.

A hopeful hymn for Leylah’s blaze,

A hopeful hymn for Leylah’s blaze, An orison for Father’s gaze.

Eternal grief, the stars now sing,

Eternal grief, the stars now sing, “The kingdom now awaits its king.”

In ruined halls and barren glade,

In ruined halls and barren glade, Thualdir mourns in twilight shade.
