At The Gathering
I wrote this one for the fifth annual Gathering of the Gargoyles. And I am so glad I got to attend.
After One Thousand Years River Of Dreams, Billy Joel's final album, includes a lovely song called "After Two Thousand Years." I was listening to the album and debating whether or not to write this filk. The song immediately after it, "Famous Last Words," begins: "Sittin' here in Avalon, / Lookin' at the pouring rain..." And thus was this written.
Angel Of the Night
To a traditional tune that my father and uncle used to sing. (Or if you feel like it, you can sing it to the tune of "Oh, Susannah" or "The Yellow Rose of Texas," but it loses some of the impact that way.)
