Snowdrop 9.4: Invocations
"These loving words you speak are true, my son;
the world demands that I renew the sun."
"I hear you talk, old man, I see your form:"I saw the world first born; I saw it cry;
are you the Tallyman? What do you count?"
I watched the love of us subdue the sun."
"The tears of fear, the cries of those about"Without the golden orb, oblivion;
to meet your knife - why do you kill at dawn?"
no love can thrive beyond the jewel sun."
"Perhaps you are an Aztec priest - we learned"We drink its energy, we steal its heat;
of them at school: they killed to tame the sun."
our need for love makes us imbue the sun."
"They tried to rule their gods, they were undone:"Our globe of flame is cracked - we've worn it out;
they culled the hearts of thousands - still they burned."
a gift of love through blood will soothe our sun."
"You killed my mother. Now you want my life"Rennaisance keeps us strong - we must proceed;
to feed your madness - will my blood make mist?"
the pulse of love shall feed the newborn sun."
"Will dogs and monsters feed upon my flesh,"There is no pain - my love is sharp and true;
a roast of Snowdrop? Best then take your knife ..."
my world demands that you renew the sun."
"... and thrust it deep within my neck and twist"A kneeling supplicant is best, my child;
it hard - a miss will end with your defeat!"
I'll score your neck - let love soak through the sun!"
