A Bower Scene

The Decemberists

Thou unconsolable daughter
Said the sister
When wilt thou trouble the water
In the cistern?
And what irascible blackguard
Is the father?

And when young Margaret's waistline
Grew wider
The fruit of her amorous entwine
Inside her
And so our heroine withdraws
To the taiga
