Catblack (The Wizard’s Hat) – T. Rex

Spun in lore from Dagamoor
The skull of jade
Was pearl inlaid
The silks, skin spun, repelled the Sun
A tusk of boar with dwarfish awe
Sobs on the door where stood before
A mountain man with sky-blue teeth
Upon his head a python’s wreath
A deer he slew in the dawning’s dew
Her heart was a dagger for a murderer’s brew.

A toad of jet on a sill cast in brass
Portrayed for his sight mysteries of the past
A yellow orphan dancer rich in Nature’s costly gold
Wept for the jailer of time to bless her old
