She captured both Rock and Bird tied
One to the leg of the other kept them as prisoners
Until they knew who was master

Then she threw them to the sky Bird
With unbarred wings disappeared Rock
With weighted heart returned
And rock became her anchor
And bird became her dream

Now she stands on the forest floor
Among the pines and towering firs
Rock still firm beneath her feet

Bird perched high above her singing songs of love's betrayal
'I offered you my endless skies you countered with hoods and chains
This song I sing will be the last to be inspired by your memory'
