The Earth Has Promised


The earth shall cry for the forces of time,
An event passes, a world collapses,
This age is against the clock,
This age belongs to us who weep
And craft out habits for the future.

The earth has dined forever in this day,
The floor is dripping with radicals
As the crust of the world shall be roasted
Inside and out by the rivers of lava and magma
That shine wearing their colours.

The earth is so bountiful and beautiful
That love has adorned the generations,
Who they cry for is absurdly to reconnoitre,
Who they are founded on is just that history,
To be enjoyed and trusted like the worldly indulgence.

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Scott

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae,
And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;
Then gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
Gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
