Midlands O Midlands

The poem takes place in the world of Exodus where the race of Dragonborn are the protectors against evil. For ages they have recided in the Midlands, a mountainous country. The story of Exodus is dark; the inhabitants following after their own will rather than the will of God. Only a select few hear God's still small voice in the world of darkness. They are Dragonborn, a race called to follow after God even in their misery and pain that surround them constantly. They are a people cut off from all others, a dangerous people even to themselves at times. Yet God has made them into the Guardians of Exodus to show the world Himself through them. Yet as humans, they like everyone else, have a will of their own. To choose to follow after Christ in this strange world or to take the easy road and walk away.

"Midlands O Midlands"
Beauty O thy beauty, land so sweet
Bled with a mighty shout from shore to shore
Healed with the scars of martyrs
O beautiful land of mine, I hear thy voice
Your voice in the wind singing

Ghosts of the past, dreams of days so long ago
A race devoted, guarding strong
When storms swept through, Spiritís sword
Quenched the darkest parts of all

O Midlands O Midlands
Where has thy children fled their wings to
O Midlands O Midlands,
Your children have fled to a land far away
O Midlands O Midlands
Call thy children home for they lost their way

Beauty of a thousand hills so true
With a fight for love so true it cost you
In a war that destroyed all
Your voice still cries in the wind for all the loss
Singing forever on winds

Once men of love, a people of pure hearts
Rangers of Exodus, seeking the truth
Through pain and death, protectors
In a world of darkness

O Midlands O Midlands
Where has thy children fled their wings to
O Midlands O Midlands,
Your children have fled to a land far away
O Midlands O Midlands
Call thy children home for they lost their way

Andrew, I agree with other comments - wonderful atmostphere created by this poem: song-like, a dirge or lament. Two things for your consideration in the refrain: In the second line, I think it should read: "Where have thy children..." instead of "Where has..." In the fourth line of that same refrain, you change the pronoun to "Your" from "Thy." Did you do that for a reason? (Somehow it breaks the spell for me...) Thanks for sharing.
