NO WORLD OF THEIR OWN

Written & Composed by Michael Woodhead

Still they wander since they possess
No world of their own
Seeking land where beauty reigneth
Where their seeds have grown

Sunless mysteries soon confront them
No world of their own
Where the suns and moons shine freely
Galaxies unknown

Rivers wash upon the seashores
No world of their own
Lakes and mountains tower above them
Streams, and piles of stones

Now they enter Quadrant Sixty
No world of their own
There they find a world luxurious
Where no winds have blown

Here the flowers grow abundant
No world of their own
Here the grass is coloured velvet
Caressing women prone


[Title inspired by Poul Anderson's novel]
