Song of Elias

On the first of spring

All seeds were sown

To much avail

A farmers tale

Upon the fields of Wylderyn

Alas, is where Elias’ grown


The family cried

The cattle died

All others ran the farm

And when that spring Elias trod

Those others came to harm


Elias had a funny head

His hair was puffed with brown

They cut his hair

He did not care

Instead he chose to snatch the shears

And then cut off the other’s crown


The family cried

The cattle died

All others ran the farm

And when that spring Elias trod

Those others came to harm


Elias stood atop a bridge

A rod in hand from local other

He caught a fish

It was his wish

But second was to take the man

And send him down below the water


The family cried

The cattle died

All others ran the farm

And when that spring Elias trod

Those others came to harm


Elias returned to his home

The family mourned the cow

He told the family he’d be back

The family wondered how


He told them all the things he’d done

They ran in house to hide

Elias halt

It was their fault

He locked the door, stroked a match

And burned them all inside


The family cried

The cattle died

All others ran the farm

And when that spring Elias trod

Those others came to harm
