In the deepest part of me
There is a horn that has sounded
And it calls for the end of all things I hold dear
The wind does not shudder
The insects do not rustle
The trees do not ache
The stone does not shift
A morning light reaches across the valley
And we hold our eyes away from it
The dawn reveals what we have created in night
and we banish it from us
This place is for holding our flesh
This place is for degrading creation
The maiden's candle does not light
The hunter's bow does not bend
The priest's pages do not turn
The painters brush does not reveal
