Summoner
"Goddess Isis's Story"

HP
I am the infinite within my soul
I have no beginning and I have no end
All this I am.
I am one with the night
Where winds rustle through the rain soaked trees.
Making a melody of creaking limbs,
The coverlet of one bough against another
A strange foreboding, as if both Earth and Sky
Were claiming me as their own.
I am lost with the night
When fragments of a drifting sky
Bow down to meet me, and I , lonely
Seem to feel this may be
The inland surge that draws me closer
The Mother of all things, the gray sea
I am gone with the night
When all false sights and sounds have let me loose
So I may drift, and drifting be
Another note in some unfinished symphony;
That once again I feel the rise of gathering birth,
Mad dream, I move full clad among the spirits of the Earth.
I am on with the night
For, all these songs that brood in Her domain
Are no less than reflections of my hidden self;
Waiting for the coming of more silent tides;
Moving in unison among the many moods;
Bidding me enter, straightway, to undiscovered worlds.
