1

The Dragon... waking

Stirring and waiting to rise

To bring doom and death


The Dragon... is known

By forgotten descendant

Who sees waking signs


The Dragon... ascends

From sleep to bring doom and death

To all but the One


The Dragon... reaps death

Descendant of the Hero

Arises with sword


The Dragon... recalls

The Hero and the bright sword

The cursed wounding blade


The Dragon... thunders

To face the Hero and blade

To bring doom and death


The Dragon... descends

To the Hero, the bright sword

Blinded by a truth


The Dragon... stumbles

Consumed by rage, the Hero

Conveys doom and death


The Dragon... lies still

Doomed and dead by the bright sword 

The blessed wounding blade


The Dragon... now sleeps

Dreaming to bring doom and death

To all but the One

2

The Orc… a lone one

Finding way through dread mountain

Bearing pain of stones


The Orc… curses life

Of all living in the light

Under the bright sun


The Orc… finds solace

In his own life created

To only destroy


The Orc… feeling pain

Freezing wind of dread mountain

Cuts through skin and bone


The Orc… treads onward

Messenger of unwelcome

Tidings of the war


The Orc… is eager

Waiting for the coming war

Shroud to fall to world


The Orc... finds the way

Passage deep through dread mountain

Off the freezing wind


The Orc… feels welcome

In the dark of the mountain

Old home of his kin
