Bite Deep And Wide, O Axe, The Tree!

Rating: 2.4

'BITE deep and wide, O Axe, the tree!
What doth thy bold voice promise me?'

'I promise thee all joyous things
That furnish forth the lives of kings;

'For every silver ringing blow
Cities and palaces shall grow.'

'Bite deep and wide, O Axe, the tree!

Tell wider prophecies to me.'
