The Lost Kingdom

Somewhere there lay a kingdom

Lost many long years ago

Small and unsuspecting, it

Was swallowed by the shadows

.

Without the light of the sun

The crops all withered and died

And in the pitch black houses

The people cowered, afraid

.

Against this evil terror

The kingdom was powerless

The soldiers could do nothing

They could not fight the darkness

.

And so the kingdom was lost

Hidden by the darkest veil

And as all light was destroyed

A lone candle flame prevailed

.

But after years of silence

There came along a stranger

Delving into the shadows

No regard for the danger

.

And in the darkness they found

The small and lonely candle

Somehow the flame still burning

On a wax coated mantle

.

And with that flame the stranger

Lit a fire within the hearth

Filling the cold, silent home

With precious light and warmth

.

Home to home the stranger went

Setting fires in every one

The warmth and light of the flames

Spreading throughout the kingdom

.

The light lifted the darkness

The shadows were burned away

The people stirred and awoke

To the long forgotten day
