Dark clouds rolling in so stark
Stark signal thrown in the dark
Shadow on the hills as wind blows
Blow in the tunnel of shadows
Dead silence as I sigh in dread
Dread sentence denying of dead

Still I wait even with chill
Chill voices of wail I sat still
Bag of patience I cannot brag
Brag I skip put it in a bag
Dark in the night I heard a lark
Lark singing alone in the dark*
