The Song of Ondine (The Cost)

 

She wasn’t singing for the Earth,

She wasn’t singing for the Air,

She wasn’t singing for our lives,

So no, we didn’t hear the song.

 

But villages were swept away,

And islands sank beneath the waves,

And deltas spread and countries shrank,

And still we didn’t hear the song.

 

And drinking water filled with salt,

And wars were fought for muddy wells,

And millions were left to rot,

And still we didn’t hear the song.

 

Our links have broken, language lost,

Without the song we count the cost.

  1. Without the song we dream again
    writing new upon our skins
    weeping willows without doors
    the song goes on, forevermore

    Can you hear it, can you say?
    this new song brings our doom today.
    forever feeling tangled lore
    this song floats forevermore
