Where is she going, the woman with her cry
loud in the sleeping city? She has slept
and dreamed of death and she has waked and wept
and now she looks the night streets high and dry
and climbs a hill and stands against the sky
and lifts her arms. Sleep is forever cold
to her. She is a weary woman, old
before her time. She roams the dark, she seeks
the arms of her beloved, climbs the light
and lifts her arms. Death will not fancy such
a weary woman who forever speaks
the lost beloved name -- she walks tonight.
