A Shadow in the Dark


I find myself in a shadow in the dark,
A little bird perched in a storm
I see a big star among the celestial body above
Yet none find me,
I'm just a shadow in the dark
A fond figure in the crowd, with a yearning to fight
No time for glasses to find me,
I'm just a shadow in the dark
None see my face,
I've barely walked from place to place
A ferocious hound could not detect, any of my sounds,
I'm just a shadow in the dark
A blindfolded darling in an eyeless sea,
What they don't know is what I'll see when my eyes are unmasked,
And I finally, see me
No god or king could understand the dark shadows where I'll land
It's just a blindfolded space, hand covered in a dreary lace
I'm no longer a shadow in the dark,
But a girl in the shadow there to scrape and indict her mark

That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
