With quiet respect

Smell the dampened earth

Building rock castles

And grip my gnarled staff

Dressed in all your finery
In your Sunday best

To soar amidst ev’ning clouds
If only in dreams

Of furious Valkyries
Wrecked upon the shore

Enough light for all

Depends which way I’m going
A mouse in a maze

Near the finish line
Going as fast as they can
Come on Blue Venture
