Wanderer from far beyond
Sing to me in that wordless tongue
Traveler in realms unknown
I hear the wind from its spectral throne
Nightwrought, the towers glow
Tall and far in their dusk abode
Yet long the winding road
Saith the wind from its spectral throne

High up the rise, looming as a pale shadow
The swirling air reveals fleeting...
Dancer, of the distant form
Dreamer, from beauty born
The vales wide, the globes in their luminescence
Await their waking and your passage

Come again, the ward and the wizard
Those pale fires, whence we came
Bind the frayed, the lost and invisible wayward cords
In open gloried wreathe, in luster timeless
Guide the wanderer, the weary voyager
Now aimed true, adorned and veiled
Prophesied, receiver to distant journey lies
Past the wooded groves, and onward beyond...

Caller, 'cross violet skies
Seeker, with rending cry
The wailing winds beckon to the lingering wisps
Drawing near to bridge the wretched rifts

Shimmering, the lucent path
Passes by in bleary flight
Mystic flickerings float alight
Pulled by the tide

Spheres dissipate in dormant grace
Rising, tumultuous, the echoing embrace
Of ascendant return
River of arcane might, breaker of fate
Reveals, 'midst towering heights, the perennial gate
Cascade of prophecy...

Warder of the coming tide
Defender in the shining night
Fear not the perils that lay in the raging waters
Nor the woes of cryptic wonders
The towers tall resound to the distant hollows
Saith the wind from its spectral throne
