Midnight, Earth!
And no new day
Beyond the waterfall of time;
Only bone-dry,
Rocky riverbeds
To dust your tongue
And rust your eyes.

Midnight, Earth!
And no new sun
To rise and light your wicked path;
Only brooding, silent
Shadow shapes
To beat the drums
And cheat your soul.

Midnight, Earth!
And no new child
To chart the course, to bear the torch;
Only disenchanted
Shells of dreams,
The lies of youth,
The price of truth.
