Kelly Zion Poems
Water, Oh, Water
Water, water, that's how I'll die
I'll die in the hollow between day and light
water Oh, water, I love you, oh say
Water, my love
Oh won't you bury me?
I'll die in the water, oh love don't you cry
you can come visit, my black valentine
I'll die in the water, so peaceful and right
I'll die by my duckings, call me on the lake
of the water, the water endless as pain
I'll die, fall in, release my breath
I'll die in the water like Clemetine did.
Paradise left this earth
when Hell 'enlarged herself'
but still we look for some warmth
outside the pit of Hell.
But this world is hell.
Baby, come, take my hand
we can find a part-time home
just to make it through this life
