The Once & Future Times
- For Ivan Elias

Those centuries went running
Struggling through the age
Every passing meadow
Framed that ancient page
I used to see what was real to me
And now I'm not too sure
Mystery of what came to be
Affliction from the cure

The poet and the peasant
The minstrel and the bard
Running through the current
Fall on times they're pretty hard
But I don't want no easy road
Or a passenger's recline
Mystery of what came to be
Caught me passing by

You are on your way now
Music of the spheres
I wish you well forever
Even if you cannot hear
And after all this passing time
It's nice that you passed by
Mystery of what came to be
The Once & Future Times
