In A Dark Corner


In a dark lonely corner
Nothing to grasp on to
Mere shadows threaten the soul
As a hunter to the hunted
What hopes await you

Many have fallen; many more to
Wherein lies your strength?
Wherein thy solace dwells
At the threat of the falconer
The foundations shake and tremble

Falling! Falling! So hard so painful
The apple threatens to kill, destroy
Console your heart, tend thy wounds
In a dark lonely corner when all hope's lost
There is a light, there is a Hope

Oft I had heard of Lucy Gray:
And, when I crossed the wild,

The solitary child.
