Ultima. Arise!

Listen to Ultima. Arise! by Richard Charles Stevens

Listen to Prelude in C Major by Johann Sebastian Bach

Ultima. Arise!
Beneath unchanging skies—make known
the fire that burns so brightly in thine eyes;
Ultima. Arise!
Take thy rightful place—enthroned
for every voice from out the future cries.

Forever never dies
Tomorrow never severs ties
Whence every tether hath no end
For each endeavour doth extend
A kindly glance to chance the arms
Ten thousand braves in gain’d advance
To call her name
Whence fate disarms
To break the chains
And wake from harm
No vacant psalm
Embalmed of truth
No blackened tooth
No claim uncouth
One vial of balm
Ten thousand proof
Such is the testament of youth
Forever never ever dies
In her reenergizing eyes
The most preeminent of sight
Reflected everywhere
In kind

Ultima. Arise!
Beneath unchanging skies—reclaim
the kingdom famed in thine unending name;
Ultima. Arise!
Take thy rightful place—acclaimed
as She for whom the shining light remains.

For ever after—and a day
The weathered rafters of decay
Need never one time fall away
Beneath the weight of fallen braves
The sprawl of leaves at her bare feet
Dress no remorse
Bidst no retreat
Comprise an ever mighty fleet
Beneath reenergizing tree
She bleeds the seed into each root
Such is her testament of truth
To feed an army red vermouth
A heady brew
Ten thousand proof
Her plumage speckled with the diamonds
Of the finest crystalline
The most preeminent of flight
Reflected everywhere
In kind

Ultima. Arise!
Beneath unchanging skies—make known
the fire that burns so brightly in thine eyes;
Ultima. Arise!
Take thy rightful place—enthroned
for every voice from out the future cries.
Ten thousand proof.
Ultima. Arise!
