[I was going to put this in to the 1.0 Music thread, but being archived, it is locked. It is my hope The Aurtach will allow a music thread to remain for all versions of the game.]

A new hymn for the Office of Aurora has come to "light."

Now when the world is shadowed and Dark
Now when the sky is empty of stars
Now when the world is wrapped in sleep
In a quiet endless and deep
In the silence of the Night

Far off in the distance
A fire comes to life
A flicker of a flame
Breaks through the dark
Burning soft and bright
Dancing with the light
Wakening the heavens and the earth

Far across the ocean
A flame is rising high
Breaking through
The shadows and the Dark
Shining in the Night
Rising with the light
Here to wake the heavens and the earth

Now as the light starts to rise
Now as the day opens wide
Now as the dream slips away
You wake to the day, you wake to the light
Heal as your dream falls away
Feel as the Dark turns to day
Leave the shadows behind
And a dream cold and blind turn into the light

Far off in the distance
A fire comes to life
A flicker of a flame
Breaks through the dark
Burning soft and bright
Dancing with the light
Wakening the heavens and the earth

Far across the ocean
A flame is rising high
Breaking through
The shadows and the Dark
Shining in the Night
Rising with the light
Here to wake the heavens and the earth

Far off in the distance
A fire comes to life
A flicker of a flame
Breaks through the dark
Burning soft and bright
Dancing with the light
Wakening the heavens and the earth

Far across the ocean
A flame is rising high
Breaking through
The shadows and the Dark
Shining in the Night
Rising with the light
Here to wake the heavens and the earth

Here to wake the heavens and the earth
Tonight!


Awakening ~ Celtic Woman

The Dragonfly
Quote:
Could’ve been a swan on a glassy lake.
Could’ve been a gull in a clipper’s wake.
Could’ve been a ladybug on a windchime,
but she was born a dragonfly.

In the sun she warmed her wings
and listened to the cicadas sing.

“The trees are all bending
in one direction
because of something...”

Cross-pollination by the legs of bees in the spring
is a beautiful thing.
Oh when the sun goes down,
the fireflies come out.

In a pond crept a slimy thing
that hummed a theme from the Rites of Spring.

Pity the mate of Queen Mantis,
so content, but so headless.
Katydid nothing but shiver and cry,
as did the dragonfly.

In the shade the gypsies spin
Among the cloves, they drop their skin.

“...beyond the hedgegrove,
over by the willows,
deep in the shadows...”

Regeneration occurs at a furious speed
beneath the white oak tree.
Oh when the sun comes up
the moon buds fold up.

In the sun she warmed her wings
and listened to the Rites of Spring

Could’ve been a swan on a glassy lake.
Could’ve been a gull in a clipper’s wake.
Could’ve been a ladybug on a windchime,
but she was born a dragonfly.

“...ain’t ever seen it, but i have heard it.
Sounds like the millstones when they are turning,
but every moment getting louder and louder,
and then there is silence,
and the smell of flowers.”
