Hi EB, Here is a poem I wrote in like ten minutes, on impulse, but I am particulatly proud of it, I want to thank Aeradel, for writing her poem, "Song of Aeradel" It gave me the inspiration to write this. So THANK YOU!! Heh, a little loud? Well on with the show.

The Battle

The Sea, The Sea,
The Sea I am
So bitter and so cold

The Sea, The Sea,
The Sea I am
You who be so bold,

To travel 'pon my misty waves
Of blue and endless night

The Sea, The Sea,
The Sea I am
Grace given is my Fright.


The Night, the Night
The Night I am
The dark and endless fear

The Night, the Night
The Night I am
Could force a child's tears.

Of shadows and of mirthless clouds
The black and lightless gloom

The Night, the Night
The Night I am
Should I speak too soon.


The Day, the Day
The Day I am
The sun and lightened glee

The Day, the Day
The Day I am
You who speak of me

Of light blue skies and grazing Deer
The green and happy warmth

The Day, the Day
The Day I am
The love of Elves and hobbits joy.


The Tide, the Tide
The Tide I am
Of rising and of falling

The Tide, the Tide
The Tide I am
The liquid of the Morning

The Moon determines my course in life,
But never will I stray,

The Tide, the Tide
The Tide I am
And never will I go away.


The Moon, the Moon
The Moon I am
Of endless silver blade

The Moon, the Moon
The Moon I am
Always am I bade

I trail across the sky at Night
O're rock, and bough and limb

The Moon, the Moon
The Moon I am
But never can I be with him.


The Sun, the Sun
The Sun I am
My rays of fiery gold

The Sun, the Sun
The Sun I am
To you I am so old

I trail across the sky at Dawn
The bringer of the light

The Sun, the Sun
The Sun I am
She eludes me always for that is my plight


The Dawn, the Dawn
The Dawn I am
The Morning beams of light

The Dawn, the Dawn
The Dawn I am
Messenger of the Night

My coming brings new life and light
Of blooming flowers and dewing pines

The Dawn, the Dawn
The Dawn I am
But never can I be with him


The Dusk, the Dusk
The Dusk I am
Of beauty and of fright

The Dusk, the Dusk
The Dusk I am
Bringer of the Night

My coming signals the end of Day
And all retreat so Night can stay.

The Dusk, the Dusk
The Dusk I am
I stay so Night will bless me with her rays.


The Battle, the Battle
The Battle I am
Torn between two worlds

The Battle, the Battle
The Battle I am
Never can I have a choice

Between the Night and The Day
Between the Dusk and the Dawn
Between the Moon and the Sun
Between the Tide and the Sea

All a Battle of Strength and Mind
Lovers torn apart
By the passage of time,

The Battle, the Battle
The Battle I am
When will I be done

The Battle, the Battle
The Battle I am
Surely the time will come.
