Dawn comes creeping upward, straddling with all her 
tendrils the dark mountain so terribly near my sweet 
but now quaking refuge of wood and stone and glass.

I peer through the panes that give onto a landscape of
horror that, to some, is pristine but, to me, is a reminder
that he was swallowed up by a wood black and cruel.

He calls out faintly, begging I rescue him from the jail
holding him fast against all escape, but who am I but
a grieving father who searches for a son forever lost.
