    Anthem (revised)

    I shall be wings, but not the night
    There need to be other golden schemes
    Softly padding children draped in white
    Are merely vague metaphors for dreams

    I shall be blood coiled in the veins
    That tends to pulse with a keener skill
    When it lies beneath the skin as bright
    As a pump that steers the will

    All of the mute practitioners have said
    Sweat is what’s left when the hands are still
    And rest is all that is left of us
    When the whisper of shadows is all we feel

    Anthem

    I shall be wings, but not the night
    There need to be other golden schemes
    Softly padding children draped in white
    Are merely vague metaphors for dreams

    I shall be blood, but in the veins
    It tends to pulse with keener skill
    When it lies beneath the skin and bright
    As a pump that steers the will

    All the silent practitioners have said
    Sweat is what’s left when the hands are still
    And rest is all that is left of us
    When the whisper of shadows is all we feel

      Bill, this feels rough technically.

    Set up as it is I expected the meter to be smoother, also it's endstopped a lot which doesn't always aid in getting a strong message across.

    What's it about? This is to say, the crafting of it became my major focus.

    I was just thinking the other day how you have some really good stuff, especially some of the shorter ones.

    We can't win them all, but back to the drawing board with this one. That's the best bet imo.
