Traveler: Aurora Sunrise

Assume the ridge and take your stance
In darken sky those colors dance
Where magic flows from sky to moon
Take heart, my friend, I’ll be there soon
Await my coming from below
Footsteps pad through silent snow
Panting breath flows thick as clouds
Beneath the trees, the forest crowds
My tail sweeps softly as I run
The snowdust stars await the sun
It burns so bright and golden clear
You called me, brother, I am here
