Tears of a Tree Nymph

--

The trees weep as the leaves fall

Into the darkness your spirit will call

Down to the ground they fall

Down to the earth they call

Worry you will

At the ancient windowsill

Cold and still

Weeping into the dark

When the world is stark

Down, down to the ground they fall

Down, down to the earth they call
