lyrics

She walks white through small back rooms
And writes on scraps of paper
Tripping to the summer taste
Of a liquor never brewed
In sixteen years, she's gone out once:
To see a church by nightshine
Provincial as a queen
A light that burns unseen

Come sing for the mother of the Myth
The character of Amherst
Who will listen from the shadows
And in some evening's twilight, she'll reward you

Candy falls from windows
To the eager hands of children
Words fall through the pen
Out of a mind the breadth of God
She peers out at daffodils
And listens to you singing
And understands the things that move
The things that move the world

Come sing for the mother of the Myth
The character of Amherst
Who will listen from the shadows
And in some evening's twilight, she'll reward you

And in a hundred years
Another Emily
Will make this world a poem for me.
