Beneath Blackest Earth

Far beneath blackest Earth,

gnarled root, encircled girth,

a Heartstone hummed her Dirge.

Lamentation. Old Sun

and Heartstone’s only Son.

Fell between Dusk and Dawn.

The Son, diseased, blighted,

leaks His poison; Blackened

Roots withered and tightened.

Heartstone recoiled, dying.

Her roots, calcifying,

Poor Old Sun left Crying.
