Canto

Mab

In the darkness defined by her light i see the silhouette of another woman.

Her skin as black as the darkness between stars.

The recent moon is her hairpiece.

She is distant, inscrutable, and cold.

Now dormant.

But only for a time.

Is this how seasons work?

The bright woman looks at me.

A fire is burning in Bird Spirit Land,

In Bird Spirit Land lies my young love.
A storm is raging in Bird Spirit Land,
I will scatter the black carrion birds.
I will watch over the kissing clay of my young love.
I will be with him in Bird Spirit Land.

A fire is burning in Bird Spirit Land.
My bones smoulder.
I must journey there.

Lavondyss, Robert Holdstock
