Silver Wings and Starling Voice

A silver-winged fairy flies

up through the icy spray.

The unnatural blizzard blows

her starling voice away.

She reaches for the lover’s hand

torn from her frantic grip.

The desperate last words of love

torn from her brittle lip.

Where, o where has my lover gone?

Far away, she was blown.

Angry winds of a world awry,

They left me all alone.

The silver-winged fairy boy

seeks his love from the sky.

He hopes to find his lover whole;

Her death he will deny!

He searches all the sky and land

from field of clover sweet

to grasses gone to weed and chaff,

His lover-lost to meet.

Where, o where has my lover gone?

Far away, she was blown.

Angry winds of a world awry,

They left me all alone.

The whistle-playing fairy boy,

long past her day of death,

Seeks the sky for his fairy girl

with all his life and breath.

His people go about their lives,

blind to his broken heart.

They want him to play the songs

while another sings her part.

Where, o where has my lover gone?

Far away, she was blown.

Angry winds of a world awry,

They left me all alone.

The silver-winged fairy boy

has no song he can play.

They taunt him with their song-less dance,

no more can he stay.

He wanders far away from home

to mourn his love, and then

finds himself with Erona’s band.

His soul is born again!

Now, o now that my love is gone,

this war of words I must wage;

to fix this broken world I love,

to bring back the golden age!
