1. On the Edge of Night

There is darkness all around,
No dawn comes.
No laughter.
Silence is the only sound.

A morning without sunlight,
Blacker nights.
Still as death,
The air is heavy and tight.

A storm is coming here now,
Fear and ruin.
They will come.
As orcs shriek, the wolves will howl.

Where is there hope?  They see none.
We will die.
Doom is here.
They believe that all is done.

But beyond night, there is day.
Shadows flee.
Darkness quails.
Through black skies, there is a way.
