The wind from the east blows
The wind from the west blows
Meet on the prairie as the night breathes
Shroud the stars in fingers of fog

What shall I hang on the chamber wall
I hear you where the lilacs grow

Down to the river's ragged edge
Shadows twist in the rising wind
A sorrowful song between the pine trees
Come, lovely, open your heavy arms


I watch in silent dawn and dreams
Battle flags broken and burned
Silver face of night, heart-shaped leaves
Break the flower from the bone
