The Firebird

Or Tasmia's Song
By: Dannell Lites
To The Tune Of: "The Whistling Gypsy Rover"

She wooed and won him on Talok VIII;

In the whirlwind love of the young!
And she took him back to her home land,
To hear the Firebird's song!

He loved the depths of open space!

And the wonders waiting there ...
The peace he sought in deepest space,
He found there in her arms!

Firebird call my love back home!

Call him back to me ...
There's no other man who can fill my heart;
There's no other man for me!

He heard her not, for he had died.

In battle dread; blood and tears were shed!
And, when she was told, the Firebird sang -
In the Abby where she fled!

Heroes live and heroes die;

Far away from home.
And their love ones cry and curse the sky ...
For a hero's soul must roam ...
