Behind a mountain veil
A school of modern dance
Tormented by the sound of hail
Threatening to shatter through her glass
One million miles away
From all love, light and protection
And all her faces fade
Into their own reflections here

Mother of a silent order
Pious to the point of bent
Grandmother, sister, daughter
Preside, advise and consent
A sleep beneath the carpets
The secret waiting in her throat
Years dreaming in the darkness
With half a century left to go

She hears the call of forest voices
Reverberating in her halls
Remembering the other noises
She turns away and she falls
Into the night's strange embrace

Standing in her shade
I had no recollection
But all her faces fade
Into their own reflections here
