Daniel's Child

Daniel came a-running

We were meeting in the sun

Daniel was a dead man

When the night had just begun


Red sweater and red shoes

On a tree branch, then a call

Bloodred sweater, bloodred shoes

And blood in the waterfall


The seas changed their direction

There were bloodcrests on a wave

A shadow tumbled forwards

There was a crow on Daniel's grave


My thoughts are still in motion

When I'm walking past the tomb

Daniel left the surface

But his child stays in my womb
