She walks on water and calls my name

serene and stern

A cold black dress gracing the cold black lake

beauty and truth

She sings of peace in the world beyond

no colour and no pain

Dressed and veiled in white I take her hand

her child and her bride

And fade with her on the path through the curtain

moonlight and mist
