Lords of air and Fire

by Michael Richards

AKA Harper Mykal

(crystal) Yes they're real

(mykal) No they can’t be

Yes they are. I've seen them flying
Out beyond the wooded valley
O'er the beach and through the skies!
Yes they’re real

No they can't be.

Yes they are: you are not hearing,
For I say I've seen them rising
Glowing shapes against the moon!
Yes they’re real

Catchin’ fish and eatin’ wherry,
Cousins of the ancient dragons.
Source of wonder, seen by starlight:
Lords of air and Lords of fire
Love the lot that they desire.
Lords of air and Lords of fire
Love the lot that they desire!

No they can't be.

Come with me and see what might be!

I'm afraid...

Are you a child?
There’s nothing loves that does not know ye!
Come then now:

Yes, I hear thee

Didn't I say that I would lead thee?

We have wandered far this night,
Out beyond the fire height!

Come then now

Yes, I hear thee

Come with me for I will take you:
To a clutch that is her mother’s.
She is real and like the others...

(Mykal impresses a bronze and Crystal a gold fire-lizard.)
“Yes they’re real “No,” you told me.
“Yes,” I said, now you believe me.
Now we have you wrapped in caring,
He will love you never leaving,
Through your life, in joy and grieving!

Catchin’ fish and eatin’ wherry,
Cousins of the ancient dragons.
Source of wonder, seen by starlight:
Lords of air and Lords of fire
Love the lot that they desire.
Lords of air and Lords of fire
Love the lot that they desire!
