Silence as the beating river in the ghoul of a northern wind,
Silence as the beating river in the ghoul of a northern wind
I kneel towards thin estuaries and darken the shawl with pearls
I kneel towards thin estuaries and darken the shawl with pearls
The northern river kneels, beating pearls,
As the shawl darkens in the ghoul of silence in the wind.

I know no better than a strait that leads into faint tears,
I know no better than a strait that leads into faint tears
Upon the winter dream, upon the softened rivers that wilt the flowers of wraith,
Upon the winter dream, upon the softened rivers that wilt the flowers of wraith,
The strait leads into a faint
Dream upon rivers wraith.

Should I go as a memory in the wind, in the faintest touch of whispering dreams?
Should I go as a memory in the wind, in the faintest touch of whispering dreams?
Or must I be upon the shore where the darkened river leaves upon a trenched lingering breath?
Or must I be upon the shore where the darkened river leaves upon a trenched lingering breath?
Memory in the wind, the faintest touch—go as whispering dreams upon the shore,
Where the leaves upon the darkened river trench as a memory in the wind.

Silence as the beating river in the ghoul of a northern wind,
Left as the wind of memory, gone upon whispering dreams,
I kneel towards thin estuaries and darken the shawl with pearls;
The northern river kneels, beating pearls into wraith-like rivers into the shore,
As the shawl darkens in the ghoul of silence in the wind.

Silence as the beating river in the ghoul of a northern wind,
Silence as the beating river in the ghoul of a northern wind
I kneel towards thin estuaries and darken the shawl with pearls
I kneel towards thin estuaries and darken the shawl with pearls
The northern river kneels, beating pearls,
As the shawl darkens in the ghoul of silence in the wind.
