The ale flows freely
Poets sing songs about great deeds
The dancers revel, raising cups of mead
Silent in the corner, the Wise One watches all
Out comes the leather bag
And the runes will fall

Their meanings hidden in lines
Their stories echoing time
The past and present combine
In the Wise One's eyes

We strike a deal
At the moment of our birth
To take our chances while we walk this earth
And in the distance
The Wise One sees and knows
Our days of fortune and our days of woe

Life's meaning hidden in rhymes
Connections there by design
Our light and shadow combine
And the Wise One smiles

One day we'll remember
The games we left behind
That golden treasure, and we will find

The secrets hidden inside
The stories told now with pride
A million pathways collide
And the Wise One shines
