Sandman: The Beat of Her WingsWhen she comes,Sandman: The Beat of Her Wings7 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms
Everyone fears her.
When she comes,
She smiles as she holds out her hand.
To take you to the sunless lands.
Whichever you prefer.
She has a duty, as so the others.
The duty to take the dead
To their land.
To make the balance
Between life and death.
When she embraces you
To take you to your final journey,
The last thing you hear
Is the gentle beating of mighty wings.
