ONCE UPON A CIRCLE OF TIME
Once upon a circle of time,
the One Ring that encompassed all things,
the Fainne Mor, rang out Harmony across existence
In the light of this song grew the glowing Tree of Life,
connecting all beings,
and flowing within its branches and leaves was
the Fire Sap—
the luminous flame of Soul
This Shining Tree grew fertile and true
in the age of myth and magic
and the Dragon Ma curled around the roots
kept everything alive with the sustenance of her body
and with the Starfire in her blood
she spun the threads of destiny
and stretched out strings of red and gold
fastening them under the Hall of the Moon
Her Web of Wyrd wove all beings together
as one family of light
All was well within the One Ring—
Elfhame, the Realm of Oneness
All things vibrated in love
All shone in the sound of creation
Until one day dark, for reasons mysterious and vast,
the Shadow was born
and when it grew to size this Ancient Enemy
struck the Tree of Souls—with a word spell—
that shattered reality into infinite pieces
The Great Tree fell
The Leaves scattered
the Roots began to die
The Soul Fires divided from their Source,
cut off from the Tree, from the Ring—
and from one another
The Shadow became a tribe of dark sorcerers,
the Súl Olc Clan
They poisoned the Dragon Ma,
subverted her power to their agenda,
and as she fell asleep into their dark world,
the Starfire in her blood went out
Centuries of suffering and pain
cycled across the Earth
Enslaved by the dark reality, the humans forgot their light
The Starfire in their blood went out
The ancestral fires faded and within their hearts
In the darkness that settled across the land,
all that remained was
a tiny glow
In the hearts of those who Love
In the sleeping Dragon Ma
In all who Keep the Light
In the Fire Seers
The Fire Seers are those who remember
the original Flame they once were
And now after centuries of suffering the Dark
It is time
To awaken the Starfire in their blood
To re-light the embers—into a flame of unity
within the Family Tree
But the ancient enemy has held sway for centuries
the Fire Seers are few,
and the embersongs are all but forgotten...
In the light of this song
grew the glowing Tree of Life
connecting all beings
