The Age of wonder Celestial collectivist, Urskek minds once sought uncoupling The dark egress from light Pariahs in their making The heart of Thra Crystalline vociferous Greater, Rose and dying sun Beckon forth their conjunction Carven mountain, crystal womb Triangulated ritual And gleefully beneath the eye Eighteen souls now cut in twain Gentle Urru, natures whim The healing melodic seraphim And sand is drawn mnemonic To transcribe their longing The hard and twisted bodies Their Harsh and twisted wills Skeksis wither in their dominion Forever sure of every error When single shines the triple sun What was sundered and undone Shall be whole, the two made one By gelfling hand or else by none So beloved, Mother Aughra Of the fever light in Urskeks falter Visions cast in black penumbra The cleaving and its desolation An inversion of this rivening Sought in Gruenak and Arathim Sowed the seeds of great division Where conquerers became exiles Atop the circle {of suns} the dual glaive {forged} Within, the shard might serve as Nostrum Garthim borne of corrupted flesh To scour all in Skeksis step Every moment one are two Is too terrible for one

Trial by stone Who shall rule? Basking in the desiccated Corpse of former emperors Each as unscrupulous As the last! Here now the fawning scientist, The ritualist and gluttony The slaver, ornamentalist Scribe and treasurer Step forth oh treacherous Chamberlain! Whose winsome tongue has licked And poisoned every offered chalice Garthim Master! Brute of Thra! Whose exoskeletal troops Bled the world of Gelfling blood From which the victor shall be quenched Trial by stone! Ashen effigy of Skekso, Forfeits his right to bestow Banished, will the vanquished be! Stripped and humiliated! Podling slaves! Raise the Haakskeekhah! And brandished in withered hands The blades that shall determine Who shall rule Trial by stone! A gnarled forgery Mockery! Of greater Perfect! Crystalline To crack a fate Render! Of our own form A ritual of harm! Of reassurance Oh simpering Skeksil fails and flails! Rend him of his stature Cast into the terrible world Where fortune favours nought SkekUng upon the throne And all shall rally around In the age of wonder The dark is made incumbent. Trial by stone!

Prophecy 06:55
Prophecy Septuple circles Of seven Gelfling Tracing starlight Divinations of dream fasting Destinies in blood descending Speaks through weathered edifice Whispers cut in silica Of healing beneath the great conjunction Slain for little more Than vanities and avarice The Skeksis scouring devour In search of deathless empire Xaghniathanor spied All but two Safe from the Garthim In the stead of the {podlings and } UrRu It is held in the song Of Thra! Raunips elemental error To heal the crystal And heed its call Kira, lineage of Vapra Jen the Stonewood child Whose hand shall deal The healing blow ‘With the shard restored The three suns Stood above the glowing crystal And flooded it with light’
