roaring pines


Far over the Misty Mountains cold
To dungeons deep and caverns old
We must away ere break of day
To find our long forgotten gold
The pines were roaring on the heights
The winds were moaning in the night
The fire was red, it flaming spread
The trees like torches blazed with light

I love this AU TBH-

If you don’t know, this is @finnrakh-tybay‘s “Roaring Falls AU” aka the “1920′s AU” as well

I like it tbh- I mainly wanted to make Flapper Girl Mabel more than anything- plus some Bipper is always a good time!

Their art for this AU is so cool and I love all of Tybay’s GF art so go check them out!

One summer afternoon, I learned my body
like a blind child leaving a walled
school for the first time, stumbling
from cool hallways to a world
dense with scent and sound,
pines roaring in the sudden wind
like a huge chorus of insects.
I felt the damp socket of flowers,
touched weeds riding the crest
of a stony ridge, and the scrubby
ground cover on low hills.
Haystacks began to burn,
smoke rose like sheets of
translucent mica. The thick air
hummed over the stretched wires
of wheat as I lay in the overgrown field
listening to the shrieks of small rabbits
bounding beneath my skin.

Misty Mountains Cold (film adaptation lyrics)

Far over the misty mountains cold,
To dungeons deep and caverns old,
We must away, ere break of day
To find our long forgotten gold.

The pines were roaring on the height,
The winds were moaning in the night,
The fire was red, its flaming spread
The trees like torches blazed with light.

The love I felt once has turned into anxious aches

Though the winds and pines roar ever persistently

I cannot help but hang my head in self pity

For what once shined brightly is now dull

The fire that once burned inside me has turned to ashes

I am numb to the simple pleasures

How I long for its resurrection

—  “How Cliche”- MTJ

“The pines were roaring on the height,
The wind was moaning in the night.
The fire was red, it flaming spread;
The trees like torches blazed with light.”
