At the edge of the Tamborine Forest

Near the lake of the floundering fish

Lived a wizard who never did die

He just vanished in the words of a mist.


Some say he never was there

Just a reflection and nothing more

But when the first day of May arrives

He strolls along the foggy shore.


The Wizard of May arrives

With the rising of the Taurus Sun

And the Ushers dutifully mind the lake

For the age of The New has begun.


The age of The New was noted

By the Wizard's words in the sky

And those that happened to read those signs

Knew when, and where, and why.


But no-one knew of the Dragon,

Not the knight, or the King, or the Queen

They fled the shores of the floundering fish

And were trapped in the in-between.


"Off with its head!" said the King.

"Off with its head!" said the Queen.

So the Knight rode away in the month of May

And out of the fog of the in-between.


He rode to the edge of the Tamborine Forest

To battle the Dragon in the age of The New

But he fell on his sword when hope was lost

'cause that's what some Knights do.
