Once held back the sea
My name lent to these lands
Wandered since the dawn of time
Wander lonely still
The unseen walker in the trees
Always close behind
The whisperer good rulers heed
Then drowned out by greed
have been, am still, will be
When the time is right
Fatherless, explorer, wisdom’s well
Poet for the fight
Spark and dart through time and night
Dealing fate some blows
