Pagan Dawn (Liturgy)

A cascade of lightning startles the firmament A thousand black hooves clatter Upon the mountain Grey plume of dust Red flag of blood Blue shining blade of sky Spark with no cause Wound with no sword Fresh skulls and supple bones Golden helm of radiance The incantation uttered by no one The call to arms from nowhere The message from the clarion Resounded across deaf hills Men awoke And sprayed their blood upon the earth Spark with no cause Wound with no sword Unseeing eye Blood mixed with blood
