Farewell to leaning fortress grey,
Your bower walls are winding trees.
Crowns aflame with breaking day,
A-tremble in the breeze.

Send your wand’rings to the sky,
Set your mantle shining bright,
Outrun the blood-red eventide
Outshine the stars at night.

Let your weary steps be swayed
Far from your hearth, far from your home.
Life and longing now forbade
When to the witch’s realm you roam.

Be wary, fear the cursed gaze
Weathered face and eye of stone,
Embers in the ashes blaze,
And you are waxen to the bone.

No weary falling of the limb!
No sight to see the sunrise dim!
No touch to feel the fallen snow!
Afar afar afar you go!

And you are waxen to the bone.
This is a poem from the beginning of the novel I'm writing. Like most ominous verses of the olden days, it was sung to small children.

Traditional rhyming, repetition, a dark fairy-tale feel and a tie to a novel-in-the-works - this was always going to be something I'd like, whatever the quality, and the quality is damn good. This is a very very nice piece of work :)
