Craftsman's Farewell

MIDI, Mp3


Written by my character Mallaoriana for the AD&D game "Bath of Return" run by Steven Stubbs, in the FidoNet AD&D echo

My tools are safely put away,
Each sharp and shining bright.
The floor is swept the table cleared;
Fading the westering light,
And now I turn from shop and bench
The work my hands know best
For the gentle night at last draws near
And it's time for me to rest,
It's time for me to rest.

I do not need to look behind
I've done what I'd to do
And warm the thought of all I've built
Dreams and family too
And now I turn from skills I've learned
The gifts with which I blessed
For the days of toil have passed me by
And it's time for me to rest,
It's time for me to rest.
