When I look upon the water, It is him I see, dressed in gold And wreathed in leaves of fall By the shore, catching me fish. And I am always full of hope. And he is never in despair.
But it's not to last, despair! My love lies - there! - under water, Beyond the grace of my hope, And I lose those threads of gold As they are eaten by the fish And I weep as away they fall.
I remember when I heard it fall And my heart sank into despair, For I knew I hadn't seen the fish, But I could not escape the water Nor could my ray of sunshine gold, And with our bodies sank any hope.
But somehow a scrap of dreadful hope Persists, stands and refuses to fall Away like my lover's hairs of gold. Stubbornly I crawl closer to despair, Callously I spurn the sheltering water, And the ghosts within of long-dead fish.
Oh, it isn't the fault of the fish Who swim wherever they can hope To find some peace in shadowed water In pools where stones did not fall Down. Sometimes I think they must despair To have caused the loss of treasured gold.
Some nights I see my lover's hair of gold, In his arms he brings me a gentle fish. I tell it, "Do not, please don't despair, I forgive you for my lover's hair." Hope Returns, and like the warmth of colors in fall I feel the gentle caress of sheltering water.
I can once again remember the thread of gold, How I draped it around to string together hope.
And I love the gentle gold-eating fish, How they follow my steps when I fall.
And I know when my time comes I won't despair, When at last I breach the final starry water.
Carried Home is a Warriors roleplay forum. We feature four clans - all four of which have futures that heavily depend on what your characters do - as well as a 50 word count minimum on RP posts, and a functioning currency and shop.
While most of the action does center around our four clans, members are also permitted to make loners, rogues, and kittypets. You can also make both StarClan and Dark Forest characters.
