Call upon a forgotten kiss,
And walk with slumbering minds.
Lilt with the drifting oak leaves,
Tosses to and fro upon the road.
Autumn has extended its hooks,
And I a fool come falling.
Catch me upon these drifting lands,
Where I may burry my madness.
For I am gone upon the burning world,
Marked with a evil lot.
Branded by an unholy love,
And cast into a witch’s pot.
Sins delicious upon naked flesh,
Toss round with guilt snd shame.
Led me to confound the searching wise,
And hide among vanity’s waiting flame.
So now I flee before gallows and rot,
Into the mad world so bright.
With sails pressed firm against waiting anchor,
I embark upon my witch’s flight.
