The whispers of the deep

Work Text:

In comprehending truth, you make the leap,

And stoop for better sense of what you hear:

To listen to the whispers of the deep.

 

Beneath the filmy surface, yet asleep,

Its purpose waits, concealed by cog and gear.

In comprehending truth, you make the leap.

 

The ancient dreamers know that time is cheap.

They call to you: Come near, come near, come near,

To listen to the whispers of the deep.

 

And you, who would their secrets plunder, keep,

Must set aside that which you hold most dear.

In comprehending truth, you make the leap:

 

That past the years of silent, crumbling creep,

The powers within foresaw you would come here,

To listen to the whispers of the deep.

 

A trail of rust and salt - you start to weep -

But promised wonders overwhelm your fear.

In comprehending truth, you make the leap

To listen to the whispers of the deep.
