High on Our Only Hill

High on Our Only Hill

Shall we look once at those closed days
We shut up and turned our backs on?
Should we let them go and watch them fall

From some higher tower we have fortified
Against all these ravages brought by time
And by the vagaries of change and happenstance.

To lay siege to this lonely tower
We built up high on our only hill
Where we would stand together to see

The valleys of all our mistakes
Spread out below us and the armies
Massing there to lay siege to what we have

Managed to salvage from those times
When we ran from the battlefields bruised and bleeding
Hoping to find some higher sanctuary.
