The Phoenix

With sword in one hand And shield in fist The knight stands ready Surrounded by mist


He feels - not seeing - As he draws them his way For the light that approaches Is not from the day


He deals the death blow To one who is near The body slowly crumbles As the mist quickly clears


He turns to the left And delivers the blow But except for the shadows There is nary a foe


The light then appears and Is sparkling and bright While the knight suddenly knows He has seen his last fight


While his hands turn to wings And his head is a crown His body is covered With feather and down


The Phoenix emerges The dark, shadowy being As the men's eyes are glazed Blinded, not seeing


The bodys around him Are blazing in fire But the Phoenix has triumphed And soars ever higher


Untouchable...unreachable To all that draw near This price for his freedom Is that which he fears
