A crystalline silence, an otherworldly plain;
Discarded piles of tribute — all that remains.
Save a single flag, yet flying;
Scarred standard yet defiant.
Lightning flashes through the vision;
Bringing thunder without sound.
Valor true, dragons dying;
Men transformed, mothers crying.
Approach the standard, here ye well;
In awe, yea in abandon, read the solemn tell.
Of one who stands in Glory;
His foe in depths of hell.
