Title: Spirit of the Dream

Author: Aedán O'Diomasaigh


I have made many friends and wonders beheld
I have found a family in Oldenfeld
met some Laurels, Pelicans and some brave Knights
been treated to the troubadours by firelight

Trimaris, Trimaris, There’s no place quite like this

I have learned to dance and sing and verse to write
seen lords helping ladies what a beautiful site
people teaching younglings tirelessly it seems
what a beautiful thing we call the dream

Trimaris, Trimaris, There’s no place quite like this

Nobles doing battle, they fight with grit and steel
at night in the feast hall they share a great meal
the children serve the feast for me and you
thank them often and give them their due

Trimaris, Trimaris, There’s no place quite like this

I have learned so many things with more to come
I'll teach what I know till my days are done
all of you my friends in my heart I'll keep
the thing about our dream is I need not sleep

Trimaris, Trimaris, There’s no place quite like this

When my life is over and my spirit is gone
bury me with sword and shield at the break of dawn
and when the sun shines down and my armor does gleam
all around will know I still live the dream

Oldenfeld, Oldenefeld no better place have I beheld

When the sun shines down and my armor does gleam
all around will know I still live the dream.
