A Tender Terror

from by Meadow Argus



A Tender Terror

Tired toad, sleepy toad
Point the way my sour friend
To the dark and windy
Hidden road.

Green Crow's Ash, white Crow's Ash
Flowering in springtime rain
Splits the road and
You'll come back again

Flighty hare, bitey hare
Chase the doe around the green
Light the flame on
All that we have been

Sweet cuckoo passing through
Stay awhile and tell your tale
Sing your song, we've all been
Watching you

Whip snake shake, whip snake fake
The way you turn away from here
Dance your children
Back under the lake

Crested hawk, your sister's gone
Away to roam the cloudy roads
Follow her and lose your
Only name
