A to Z Challenge: “L” Labyrinth “Magic Dance” & “As The World Falls Down” #AtoZChallenge #Labyrinth #DavidBowie

I’ve joined in for the A to Z challenge this year which runs from April 1st to the 30th. My choice of theme is Music from Favorite Films. I’ll be sharing the songs in order of film title and will write a little about my thoughts on the movie as well.

“Those icy eyes glittered, and I was afraid. I trembled, but not with cold. I ached, but not with pain. My feet began to move of their own accord, and I followed the Goblin King out of the light and into the darkness.”

In frosty winter one might doubt
Which bird is luckier now.

Which linnet is the luckier bird,
Oh who could doubt it now? Continue reading “Wintersong by S. Jae-Jones”
