Those cave crystals cringe
At the clang of teeth

Within their creaking cavern
clear tears cry down

To make beautiful bells,
Blemishing the mirror

As a dragon drums,
Undead ire, low and deep.

NOTE: imagine Smaug's cavern in The Hobbit, or possibly the mines of moria. You
decide. Written w/ Old English Versification, with the use of caesura, alliteration, yada-
yada...
To explain: "cave crystals"=icicles hanging from the ceiling of a cavern. They
are melting, and the water droplets are making ripples in a pool below them. The reason
for the icicles' melting and "cringe"ing is a snoring, rumbling dragon in the cavern
(Smaug!). Hopefully it makes sense?
