Widow's Watch


From a widow's watch
a young maiden squints through the rain
waiting for her lover
to return
knowing no one could escape
the storm's evil snare
when the lightening strikes
she knows he is gone
and her heart it tears
bringing half of it to the bottom of the sea
with him
though she knows
he will not return
no matter how she yearns
forever she watches
from a widow's watch

And you hear the kyouck and gobble of the struttin' turkey cock
And the clackin' of the guineys, and the cluckin' of the hens
