Its bracing fire will soon burn out.

It is time to answer that waiting call.

Bold men have failed to walk tall

into shadows imbued with doubt

The brightest star will fade and fall.

Do not resist, do not stall.

Ignore sweet words from sour mouth.

It is time to answer that waiting call.

Confident stride reduced to crawl.

No escape from this final bout.

The brightest star will fade and fall.

Pursue this path and risk it all

Or flee like swallow fleeing south?

No. It is time to answer that waiting call.

So knock down this battered wall

But do not give into triumphant shout.

The brightest star will fade and fall.

It is time to answer that waiting call.

Aoife Duffy.
