Notre Dame (For Séverine)  There on the night We lost Notre Dame The silence of bells The howl of alarms And we sang songs Recited our hymns Heads bowed below stars Recanted our sins Words in the clouds  Of billowing smoke High up above  Parisian folk The ash and the dust Brought by the wind Across the dark sea To Séverine She wipes the flour from her hands The oven's turned low Sugar like sand And unleavened dough Dreams filled with fire And funeral pyres And tumbling down Gargoyles and spires And sweet Séverine toasted with gin A glass to the sky A never ending goodbye And in Jervis Bay A Single Sun Ray Broke through the clouds

You’ll be stomping and crying and laughing, and if you’re lucky to catch Moldre live, you’ll be doing all three with a whiskey in hand.” Timber & Steel ... more
