She said: "I am going

My time here is done

Keep the hope, let the fire still burn

I hear them now calling

To darkness I must run

And I do not expect I shall return"



She said: "You can hear me

All those that here dwell

Whose place on this globe is assured

Listen! Do not fear me

Nor my kin as well

Let them live in peace upon this world"





Hear me, earth and sky and water

Hear me, mountain, hill and stars

Hear me, fire, ice and life

Let my children call you home



She said: "I am weary

Of pointless pretense

Of yearning for stars and for sun

My sweet children, hear me!

From on this day hence

I shall run in the now and know none"



She said: "I am coming

Green woods, endless plains

You know who is she whom you lured

Flesh changed and heart drumming

My price now I name

Let my children find peace in this world"



Hear me, earth and sky and water

Hear me, mountain, hill and stars

Hear me, fire, ice and life

Let my children call you home



She said: "I am frightened

But soon it will pass

Run now with my new kin and forget

On my child will guide you

And while darkness lasts

Know always; I have no regrets"



Hear me, earth and sky and water

Hear me, mountain, hill and stars

Hear me, fire, ice and life

Let my children call you home



So she said; then turned to go without words

And the howl of the wolf replied for the world.
