Do you hear the fairies call

From Fairy-land, from Fairy-land?

Can you see the hidden door

To Fairy-land, to Fairy-land?

Escape the dark and find the light

In Fairy-land, in Fairy-land.

 

Is there no pinker sky than

In Fairy-land, in Fairy-land?

Ponies fly o’er crystal streams

In Fairy-land, in Fairy-land.

Where else do sunflo’ers sing

The Battle of New York

By: AutumnMooncakesApril 28, 2015

What matches the might of iron?

What drowns the drums of thunder?

Watch the arrows soar and strike.

Shield against armour, one goes down.

Fist against spaceship, a dozen fall.

Vehicles smashed, wreckage in flames.

Remember My Name

By: MarchingBand4LifeApril 17, 2015

Walking up the steps to my apartment

Wipe my feet on the doormat

everything so clean

As I look around

everything bare

Before I leave

I have one request

Remember my name

 

Once I'm gone
