Human VoicesTill human voices wake us and we drown,Human Voices by QuenWrites
oh, let us dream among the summer clouds
as though we never shall be woken,
and let us run through blooming meadow flowers,
among the forest's rows of wooden towers
where elves' and fairies' tales are spoken.
Till signs of life intrude upon our sleep,
oh, let us dance and 'neath stars bathe our feet
and bring our wildest dreams to life,
and let us cast the woes of day aside
and, in the endless darkness, freedom find
where joy and wonder conquer strife.
Till morning's breath upon our brows is blown
and sun's soft light upon our eyes is thrown,
oh, let us talk of liberty,
and though the night is deep and dark and cold,
such wond'rous stories shall 'twixt us unfold
the night itself shall raptured be!
