Before He Emerges Forth into the Light


Before He Emerges Forth into the Light

He now resides in the shadow of the night.

Where sacred pear trees grow.

He is still asleep.

Let nothing disturb his blessed dream,

his journey through the Book of the Night.

It is a dark and dangerous book,

full of demons and monsters.

He knows the name of each one of them.

His knowledge is his only weapon.

He is the man of 200 spells

and his heart is pure.

To become the one who emerges forth into the light,

he will have his heart measured for sins.

The scale will not tip, for he is an honourable man.

Let no one disturb his blessed dream,

for he is the one who will bring back the Sun

and dispel the terrors of this long night.
