Oh, the torment bred in the race,
the grinding scream of death
and the stroke that hits the vein,
the hemorrhage none can staunch, the grief,
the curse no man can bear.
But there is a cure in the house,
and not outside it, no,
not from others but from them,
their bloody strife. We sing to you,
dark gods beneath the earth.
Now hear, you blissful powers underground –
answer the call, send help,
Bless the children, give them triumph now.
I may have watched the trailer for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows more than once today. I may have watched it frame-by-frame trying to decipher which parts of the book the quick shots were from. I may be a huge Harry Potter nerd, but I think you guys know that by now.
