Default Brenda's Pern Poems

These are mostly adapted from the songs and verses in the Pern books. I am going to start a feedback thread as well, so please don't post here!

Harper, Tell
The first verse is the original one, from a chapter heading in Dragonsong.

Harper, tell me of the road
That leads beyond this Hold
That wends its way beyond the hill
Does it go further on until
It ends in sunset’s gold?

Harper, you sing of dragons brave
And sky-borne Threads of fear
A constant battle in the sky
Would it be safe enough that I
Could run away from here?

Harper, I would travel far
When one day I am grown
And sail a boat upon the wind
To places I have never been
Learn things I had not known.

Harper, tell me of the world
Through which I long to roam
Think you I’d find adventure there
Or that I’d only find despair
Return in sorrow home?

Harper, sing a song of hope
For dreamers such as I
Who long to travel far and wide
And hope that we might one day ride
On dragons in the sky.

Please post feedback here!
