Section 5

1   Do my wishes deceive me?
2   I have never seen like this before
3   Darkness and tears fill my eyes,
4   But not today.
5   No longer do they mourn;
6   No longer do they not realize their path.
7   Is this the ending?
8   Is this what I wait for?
9   There can be no deception
10  With such dreams that outweigh my own.
11  Does this end have to leave so soon?
12  Do not take the end from me.
14  Do not put out the least for they will save
15  The gathered will tell of the path of the
16  The bound will know of the path of the stone.
17  Words are many, but action is what is
18  The gathered will find rest when the light
20  The circle is broken;
21  The metal is melted in the fire.
22  Strangely the cloth does not burn.
23  The cloth of many;
24  It remains in the fire
25  And produces new life.
26  Though the circle is gone
27  It has brought triumph.
29  The dreams of the wise are a gift from the
30  The cleft is blessing to the gathered.
31  Contempt is a gift from the accuser.
32  Roll the stone to know the deceiver.
34  They ask for it again.
35  They cry out for yesterday.
36  They want wisdom united
37  Under one.
38  “Never”, He says.
39  That time has vanished.
40  Misery will be great
41  If that ancient place is visited again.
43  Can a dead tree grow again?
44  A man looks and sees death.
45  It has been cut to nothing.
46  There are no more branches,
47  And no future is seen.
48  But the Maker looks and sees life
49  Beneath the death and destruction.
50  A drop of water falls from the sky,
51  And begins the journey downward.
52  And the roots drink deeply.
53  With the wisdom of the grower a new branch
    will grow.
55  The burdened one will write to save worlds,
    and save one.
56  The dreamer will dream to save worlds, and
    save many.
57  The path is folly for those who toil.
58  The path is wise for those who wait.
60  I see the tree, with so many branches.
61  What a sight!
62  To watch it fall, and grow again.
64  Can teeth replace Books?
65  Can hands replace Ink?
66  Can mirrors replace memory?
67  Can one replace the many?
68  When such things are believed
69  So an ending nears.
71  The Maker listens to D’ni,
72  And he hears nothing.
74  All of them look over you.
75  And they do not see the right path.
76  Follow the path of light, enter a new
78  They seek answers in Ink and Paper
79  And only find truth.
80  They seek change in truth
81  And only find empty hearts.
83  They follow the truth and denounce all that
    is within.
84  Evil is buried as quickly as love.
85  They study the truth and denounce all choice.
86  Evil is shunned as quickly as good.
87  They write the truth and denounce all that
    came before.
88  Perfection is sought as quickly as evil.
90  Seek knowledge and you will find evil.
91  Seek wisdom and you will find knowledge.
92  Seek truth and you will find wisdom.
93  Seek love and you will find truth.
95  A new river flows through the land,
96  Its paths are chosen wisely.
97  The waters have lived through many dry lands
98  And are no longer deceived by imaginary
99  There are some who hear it roar through the
100 Some see the dark waves and ripples.
101 Those who refuse to acknowledge that it flows
102 Are swept away by the storm that follows.
104 Make a path to the sun,
105 And the light will sine upon you.
106 Make a path to the sky,
107 And the storms will come.
109 A new tree buries the beliefs of old;
110 A tree of stone and power.
111 Deep roots sustain it;
112 Roots that absorb the waters of the past;
113 Waters long forgotten
114 But still flowing underground;
115 Under new trees, with barks of life
116 And rings of stone.
118 Under the sun is the bringer of destruction.
119 To the wound the bringer of pride returns.
120 But the son of the son will carry the burden.
121 And his wife will face the storm.
122 Give him a pen, and he will plan.
123 Give her a pen, and she will dream.
124 And a daughter will carry the burden of her
125 And the daughter of the daughter will live in
