My Mercurial Soul

Silver washes through the sea Veins trace life deep into me White transpires, falling free From this Tree of Mercury Thus have I seen love's bright sheen Shining forth the last sunbeams One white light 'midst all the sea This crying Tree of Mercury Orbs of sunlight drip to dirt Where veins of life spread through the earth Searching, blindly, for the rain That seeps up to drip down again These silver veins stretch through the sea In search of sunlight as it fades And all across the crimson waves Is falling rain, sorrow to sea Tears of the Tree Of Mercury A sunset slips so slowly to A garnet rain with silver strewn These crimson tears of love for you Fall as the sunset fades. The moon Now rises, shines so pale upon A night that never will know dawn So still, alone, I'll always be This crying Tree of Mercury
