White Queen (As It Began)

So sad her eyes.
Smiling dark eyes.
So sad her eyes
As it began.

On such a breathless night as this
Upon my brow the lightest kiss.
I walked alone.

And all around the air did say
My lady soon will stir this way
In sorrow known.

The white queen walks,
And the night grows pale.
Stars of lovingness in her hair.

Needing unheard.
Pleading one word.
So sad my eyes.
She cannot see.

How did thee fare? What have thee seen,
The mother of the willow green?
I call her name.

And 'neath her window have I stayed.
I loved the footsteps that she made
And when she came.

White queen, how my heart did ache.
And dry my lips no word would make.
So still I wait.

My goddess, hear my darkest fear.
I speak too late.
It's for evermore that I wait.

Dear friend, goodbye.
No tears in my eyes.
So sad it ends
As it began.
