The Queen's Dagger

(July 31 1997 / Vermont)

Cross My Heart


I'll cross my heart,
but I do not hope to die.
If the reaper takes me,
I will not run away,
neither will I invite him to stay.

Death is neither a friend, nor foe.
And yet he has so many enemies,
waiting to win a victory over him,
but he smiles coldly and knowingly,
for he knows that he cannot lose.

I want you to know
one thing.

You know how this is:
if I look
at the crystal moon, at the red branch
