Enchantment waits in ebon flight
A raptor takes his place
Guided by the maiden’s light
In this mysterious place

Upon her shoulder he does rest
To wait the next command
A silent chant from ruby lips
Awakens where she stands

Fairy lights from her lantern glow
Fueled by the maiden’s plight
They must find the one she loves
In the darkness of the night

Yet, Enchantment waits in ebon flight
With a destiny to foretell
“I am the one you are waiting for,
This owl, now rapt in your spell.
I’ve traveled back from whence I came,
To light your lantern once again”
