Lord of the Wood,
Keeper of field and pasture,
Wind in the Willows,
All alone, yet all-encompassing,
Please hear me,
Horned one, Lover, Father.
Come through from night
And over the ocean!
With blessed tidings 
Greet this night.
Shackles of this Iron Age
Kept us from our very own Arcadia,
But now...

We rise,
To turn the tides of such esteem,
That lead these blind ones to grieve
The longings that were freely given them,
So now they fear true sovereignty.

...And we will free them.
They will know pleasures
That can only come
From the Wood.
