Song of the Forge


The forge-fire sets a glow in the heavens,
the hammer thunders, showering the smoke with sparks.

A ruddy smithy, the white face of the moon,
and the hammer, ringing down cold dark canyons.

It ain't what you don't know that gets you into trouble. It's what you know for sure that just ain't so.
