The Songs of the Gully Dwarves
From Preludes Volume 5 (pages 143, 226)
Novel by Mary Kirchoff & Douglas Niles
King and Queen descend from mud,
Land in Beast Pit with a thud.
Aghar crown them, dance and sing,
And they be king and queen forever.
Big yellow sun,
No spit in eye,
Die all day,
Leafs up in the sky asleep,
Gray, gray, gray,
Sleep, old man,
and the trees
call us for eats.
The leafs are on fire,
but so what,
they all be gone by snowtime.
