lyrics

behind the monastery wall
slightly to one side
stands a broken garden house
where lovers like to hide
there with arm and leg entwined
youth and joy intone
while monks deep chant their masses
and human sin bemoan

the lovers souls like candles
flame up and burn so bright
the glory of their passion
seems to sear away the night
the monks they raise their voices
fingers on their beads
and pray the darkness
swallow their earthly needs

the lovers satiated lie
in each other's arms
the monks file slowly cellward
whispering their psalms
sleep tucks its golden blanket
a kiss
a final oath
earth's giant cradle
rocks monk and lover both

drifting down

the stars creak in their orbits
a school of clouds rolls by
moon smiles like a baby
creeping higher in the sky
one half the world wears darkness
the other chooses light
we wind our way toward heaven
neither wrong nor right

to be free
