Window on the Dragon


Aaron faheud Swiftrunner            



Chorus:
March through the window to another world
March in the valley with banners high, unfurled.
Sing for the ‘morrow, refrain into the sky
Cariadoc is calling through the glass to you and I.
Verses:
I look upon the morning as I have a thousand times
Through ancient colored glass a vision will arrive.
A King held there forever is beckoning to me
Come into the Dragon land and take up for the free

The Dragon’s fire is shining through ancient glass
"Come with my children, lead them through the pass
Arrows will be flying, and our world must see
Through light of yesterday, tomorrow’s children free."

March through the window to another world
March in the valley with banners high, unfurled.
Sing for the ‘morrow, refrain into the sky
Cariadoc is calling through the glass to you and I.

From dwelling under nameless hill when kingdoms were but two
Down the years releasing children bright and true
Dragon has been flying upon well-honored wing
Mark you well upon her heart and tooth and barb and sing

Difficult the birthing, remembered through the years
Yet bold are the eldest sons of Calontir!
The falcon grew into her own--her songs fill the sky
Proud is the dragon to see fair daughter fly.

The silence of Elegil was loud on northern pier.
But no word from Cleftlands could silence Ealdormere
The wolf she is a’roaming in northern forest proud
And we all praise her, a mighty kingdom now.

The Jarl found a coronet upon the granite wall
And declared a destiny for Griffyns one and all.
The compass star is pointing to freedom on the field
Mighty are the legends singing in Northshield

Yesterday still whispers to us, guiding from afar
We have but to listen and remember who we are.
Our children will lead us where the dragons go
If we remember what our elders know

So look upon the morning as we have a thousand times
Through ancient colored glass a vision will arrive.
Dragon has been flying upon well-honored wing
Mark you well upon her heart and tooth and barb and sing
