The Banshee's Wail
Age Group: Adult
I ken the cry, the banshee's wail.
The tears that come with her sad, sad tale.
I've heard the screams that to her give birth.
The banshee's wail and all it's worth.
I've lain as dead and sung her song.
Line and verse of a dirge that's far too long.
I've mouthed the screams that to her give birth.
The banshees wail for all it's worth.
Ever heard that mournful tune?
The song that says "Your time is soon"?
Your time will come and you'll lose your mirth.
We'll hear you wail for all its worth.
Author's Notes: I wrote this on 3-26-02, after a exceptionally expressive therapy session. No music as of yet, but I 'hear' it with drawn-out ending notes and sung in the same style as a dirge, a la Dead Can Dance.
