"Mendle" as written by and Carolanne Pegg....
Their heir stood before them
Strung with stones of white
Like a lavish lady waiting
For her lover to dare
To pluck the jewels from her
To meet her icy stare
Make her surrender to him there
Dreaming they dance
As daylight disappears
Casting silver shadows
Laughing without fear

Lucy she smiled as she heard the stars sing
And her hand it was warmed by her zodiac ring
Lucy she smiled, thought no more of the day
Wondered why her body felt colder than clay

High upon the hill
Silent streams below
Three brothers await
Lay for Lucy low
Three sisters wail
As the wind began to rise
Whirling round the hall
Scalding Lucy's eyes
And as Lucy drank
The rain began to pound
Like the basilled butterfly
Pinned her to the ground

Lucy she smiled as she heard the stars sing
And her hand it was warmed by her zodiac ring
Lucy she smiled, thought no more of the day
Wondered why her body felt colder than clay

As the sun rose in the sky
Puzzled people came
Wondered at this lady
Laying without shame
Saw her silky skin
Savaged by the storm
Clutching at the hail
With the hand that was still warm
So the dancing leaves
Heard a lamenter sing
Saw a laughing child
Take the lady's ring

Lucy she smiled as she heard the stars sing
And her hand it was warmed by her zodiac ring
Lucy she smiled, thought no more of the day
Wondered why her body felt colder than clay
