The Land of Oak and Iron

Wandering the land of oak and iron
Travel across the Moors in search of passion

Looking for answers that will reach me to belonging

Broadening horizons, peace and love I want prolonging

At home near the forge
This spectacular view of the gorge
On the anvil the hammer strikes the sword

The sky is scorched with white fire
The hills feel it's life force sparks flint with ominous desire.

A whisper in the wind can be caught with your hand

The cloudscape is magnificent and never is it bland

Thunderous applause echoes through this valleys wards

It's streams borrow the light and give it back for our dreams

In this land of oak and iron the air has more to it than first seems.
