    Description:
       
    I read a fantasy book, by Michael Moorcock, and decided, that one of the themes in it should be expressed as a poem

    So here it is...

    dotsThe Astral Stardots
    -------------------------------------------


    The Astral star shone on the gazing city
    Its silver beams shone on the mist
    Its calming glow was filled with pity
    The silence clenched up like a fist
    Surrounded by the darkest waters
    The city island wept on through the night

    The star has seen ten thousand years
    The ancestors that raised the island from the sea
    As Poseidon's guards devoid of fears
    Watched over the island city, let it be
    They swore to protect it from all harm, and age of years
    But they could only watch the fury be

    The Star looked dazed upon the fate of ages
    As kings changed thrones and vanished like a dream
    As royal guards protected mages
    And in the court all that was not seen
    And now it had fallen into ashes
    As ash to ash is dust to dust

    Now the Astral star had seen the great betrayal
    Its own king had turned upon the sea
    Would those remaining think he was too frail?
    To rule over the greatest that could be?
    Or had in a sweeping fury he decided
    To tear the flesh of the city from its bone
    Did he see himself too great to sit upon its throne?

    And ages on the Star still sees them ponder
    Trying in their books to find out the answers to that night
    Why did he choose to end this wonder?
    Who or what in all the worlds gave him the right?
    But they could not see inside his mind
    They could never understand what drove him or his kind

    The Astral star saw him as he rode across his city
    As he paid visits to the dragon caves
    They slept and upon them he took pity
    For many would fall in the coming days
    With sadness he saw across his whole dominion
    A shadow that fell across all the lands,

    The Astral star had seen a wonder
    A great fleet sailed, the edge of sky and sea
    Their gleaming sails took them yonder
    From them even the waves would flee
    If only the island city could have foreseen the darkness rise
    It was as if the gods had claimed it as their prize

    The Astral star was watching clouds rising up like rings
    In the royal cabin the king had seen a vision
    His ancestors had come before him, asked him many things
    "Does still the gazing city gently dream?"
    "Does the narcotic haze in silence still prevail?"
    "And does the power of the island city still spread wider
    Like the wings of destiny we gave to you?"
    But all he could do was nod and wonder
    What they would tell him when he joined them in dreams


    The Astral star star was looking on as the king turned upon his island
    As he brought enemies into the harbor, twisted like a maze
    The fleet was moving, dark and silent
    Gliding through the fogs narcotic haze
    And here would the city's greatest fall
    Towers that stood so proud n tall

    The Astral star saw how he in fury
    Raged into his own palace in the night
    And later on they would say: "Truly
    The city had seen the last of light"
    And then a fire swept upon the palace
    The city drank its poisoned chalice

    The Astral star shone on the gazing city
    Its silver beams shone on the mist
    Its calming glow was filled with pity
    The silence clenched up like a fist
    Surrounded by the darkest waters
    The city island wept on through the night

    The Astral star now looks by
    At the rising mist, the silver haze
    Watching as the ashes fly
    A nightmare in a daze
    Out there beyond the static scream
    He saw the truths that were unseen


    It felt as if the sky was falling down
    T'was raining diamonds to the ground
    And tears of pearl
    And ruby stones
    The darkness chilled him to the bones
