The Yearless Voice

And then Another called from the Vastness—
The Yearless Voice which spoke beyond the ears,
serene sound so clear and which resounded
in the very heart and soul of this prince:
“If you do so pierce the veil of this Wood,
if your feet break the seal of Its bound’ry,
you will give to It all and ev’rything,
and as you strive for Its Light—Highest Prize!—
you will give all that you hold dear—or could.”
