Last Wishes

O fair and stately maid, whose eyes
Listen to the surrounding seas
Beneath my window in the low cut mountains
Let my hopes make you smile

My son is dead and I am going blind
Sitting in his rocker waiting for your presence
For three days I heard them grieve and cry
Wrap the earth in cloudy weather and set me free
