1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Eyes cast over the rolling town.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Cosy homes and the darkening green
Swaying yet static on the stroll down
Into this accustomed genial scene.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Lights in the distance tower above.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Beacons standing majestically and proud
Shine on this field of hate and love
Witnessed many times by a believing crowd.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 A striking presence in the quickening night.

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Steals the stares from those who glide by
Sparkling through from a meaningful height
Suddenly erased when the lambent lights die.

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 Entertains the fortunate ones inside.

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 Listening closely for the shouts and cheers
A symbol for tense action that will betide
Those dazzling moons muting the jeers.
