Through the Mist and Fog

Through the mist and fog,
We traveled;
Mysteries of song,
Unraveled.
To subside our fears,
We talked;
Lest something hiding near,
We walked.
O’er the ground we’re rushing,
In retreat;
Leaves all around, we’re crushing,
‘Neath our feet.
Howling in the woods:
They’re calling,
Prowling; nothing good,
Befalling.
Stopped ahead in our path–
A beast;
Dropped dead by his wrath,
We ceased.
