The Drunkards of 5th August

3. Burn Slow

Burn slow, o’ lighted candle
And fear not the dark that lie outside.
Burn slow, o’ lighted lantern
And see the shadow flee your burning bright.

The sword upon the anvil,
The hammer upon the sword,
The whirling moth that spins and sings
Oh God, oh God, oh God!

(No.3, from 'Winter & Rain'. circa December 2004)
