New lore ~ Flower of the field

A sneak peek at the next thrilling Lore of the Underlings episode,
which I’m writing as we speak (Episode 4 ~ Preview 14)

Absently she closed her eyes and quietly began to sing. She sang a beautiful, haunting song… the spirit of a shadow’s dream… a shapeless, enrapturing melody that wrapped the mind in mystery… the echo of some ancient lullaby calling from deep inside…

O you my little love, my child
Were born a flower of the field
Your perfumed hair so soft, so sweet
The gold of summer long adored
Adorned in ribbons, O yet wild
Bright-eyed, no darkness have you seen
But kissed of sun, caressed in rain
Brushed by the wind upon the field

My ever love, my only love
My child, my flower of the field
They say your petals ride the wind
One and a thousand leagues away

My ever love, my only love
My heart, my flower of the field
They say your petals sail the sea
Two and two thousand leagues away

My ever love, my only love
My soul, my flower of the field
They say your petals grace a land
Three and three thousand leagues away

Tonight my love, the stars above
Show me my flower of the field
Your petals cast across the sky
Long gone my love yet ever here
