A view of marble slopes


A view of marble slopes

When she stood at the window
Looking out expecting nothing
To see but what had passed
Away across the last night
A whisper from the slopes
Of Canigó

Not a message but a plain
Remembrance tout à coup
Blinding in the dark void
Away across the lost night
Her lover from the slopes
Of Canigó

She winged up and away
She flew away from my
Window chanting songs
Of the Sybil soaring across
The sheer marble slopes
Of Canigó
