lyrics

IV. On Mirror Pond

Let me take you child anon,
Down, down to mirror pond.
You’ll see what lies beneath
The water.

I have been there all the while,
Watched your slowly fading smile.
It’s time you grow, it’s time to throw
You under.

I was there by cradle bed,
By you when love turned and fled,
Or was it you? It’s time you knew
The answer.

Down, down, up to waxen curls,
The dream skin of youth unfurls
And comes undone, all things now one in
The mirror.

So take my hand, we’ll fly anon,
O’er the vault of sky, beyond
To starry airs, three silver hairs for to
Remember.
