Songs of Albinor No. 12

By Marcus Pan

GemGem of beauty, stone of earth.
Greatest stone of widest girth.
Pow'r unknwown contained within.
Largest of all bane's of men.

Wakens greed with single touch.
Evil deeds and hateful lust.
For nothing more than single glance.
Spear thy brothers on thirsty lance.

Passing through the hands of men.
Blackened death its luster sends.
Blazing fire like burning brand.
Delusions tear through wielder's hand.

Hot to touch and cold to heart.
Shining brightly in the dark.
Return this stone to Mother's hand.
Deep beneath the Broken Lands.
