WHAT THE WIND REMEMBERED (SONG)

Original poetry / lyrics by Katya
Original song / performance by Katya




what the wind remembered

nobody remembered her name or her face
or the pale of her wrists
by the edge of her lace


no one remembered the man or his name
who sunk his axe deep
in the wood
in the yard
in his sleep


only the wind still whispered her name
through the gaps and the floors
through those walls
made of wood


and wrung out the leaves of the trees
just like hands
to remember the others


the other ones who had died
there


two and twenty years before
and twice as long
before then


and twice as long
before then


and twice as long
before then
