Three Snake Leaves

from Shadowland by Atom Orr



There's a woman, she spoke to me from beyond the sea,
Where black waves and red foam bleed.
She said, "Earthen Man, to see the world from a stranger's eyes,
You must first die a little to let them inside."

As far as the sky is blue.
Truth, truth is a pathless land
nowhere to tread, nowhere to stand,
Don't bother reaching out, it won't take your hand.

As far as the sky is blue.

Woman, oh woman, everything moves at the mercy of the sea.
Twice more she'll come and then she'll be gone.
Three Snake Leaves will bring her back to me.
Flying two ravens, Thought and Memory.
Eleven Poison Rivers and Nine Misty Worlds
I will cross to take you into my arms.

As far as the sky is blue.
