Song of Huma (Reprise)
From DragonLance Legends Volume 2 (page 216)
Novel by Margaret Weis & Tracy Hickman
Poetry by Michael Williams
Through cinders and blood, the harvest of dragons
Traveled Huma, cradled by dreams of the Silver Dragon,
The Stag perpetual, a signal before him.
At last the eventual harbor, a temple so far to the east
That it lay where the east was ending.
There Paladine appeared
In a pool of stars and glory, announcing
That of all choices, one most terrible had fallen to Huma.
For Paladine knew that the heart is a nest of yearnings,
That we can travel forever toward the light, becoming
What we can never be.
