That Tower Standing Tall


A dark tower standing tall,
Amoung the open plane,
Mocks the understanding,
But wallows in the pain,

What life is known of this,
What stories can be told,
Of this dark towers life,
And what his sights behold

The tower can see everything,
From land, to sky, to moon,
What dark gestures show in this,
That we will know soon,

For god saw,
But does not always see,
What the dark tower has,
But soon,

That is what things will be.

When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
