THE SOUND OF THRUSH SONG - Savannah P.




In the stillness of the silence
In the darkness of the night
There comes the sound of Thrush song
As the day blooms golden bright

In the coldest depths of winter
On the brightest summer day
There comes the sound of Thrush song
To lead you not astray

In the worry of this lifetime
In the doubts that play their tune
There comes the sound of Thrush song
Glowing silver as Hymlume

In the midst of all the tragedy
In the middle of all the strife
There comes the sound of Thrush song
That promises new life 

So when you cannot find your path
When in the dark you wander
Wait to hear the soft Thrush song 
From across the Final Waters

How very lovely and so very true. I love how this poem is song-like, how it can be applied not only to Goldstone Wood but our every day trials. Phenomenal job!

One of my favorite poems. Simple, timeless poetry style yet encompasses the entire series so beautifully.

Thank you all! I'm a little surprised at myself for entering a poem ... I normally never read or write poetry :). Eanrin would be appalled.
Anyways, I'm glad you all enjoyed it! ~Savannah P.

Such a beautiful poem, Savannah, dear!! It does have a real song-like quality to it, I actually found my mind constructing tunes all on its own to fit the lyrics! I really really love the hope quality that encompasses this thing...it's so bright and fills you with warmth even during the moments you feel like poodoo.... (not kidding)

In short, as cliche as it sounds I really truly love this poem, it's so beautiful....bravo!!

So simple, yet so intricate. I tried to read the poem, but the poem kept on singing to me instead (it had a beautiful voice, by the way). It was outstanding to say the least.
