Grey horses I must harness,
hunt restlessly through vast and ghastly fields.
Coated and soaked in mud
until the hooves get stuck.

On seedless wastelands
where the fallen lie and rot.
Where only burnt spruces
honour their death.

I bear them in my heart as I walk on
I bury them in thoughts –
who curse the day that I was born.
Winds between ruins tell
tales of those who faced hell.

Narrow, in dead straight streamlets
brick-red brooks keep slowly guttering.
The soil will cover all betrayal.
The crows take what belongs to them.

Ravaged fields all seamed with crape.
Weep and woe mixed up with hate.
But wars must be won
I have to ride on.
Unbroken my might
golden my light
brightens my path to the skies.

desperate hands
digging in the sand
mourner’s hair hangs down in strangs
all cloaked in black
looks stab my back
hissing their banes
dreadfully insane
spitting their hate in my face

Doomed shall be Thy name.
Cursed shall be Thy house.
