Secret Garden

(Words and music by and © Talis Kimberley, 1991)

Night has heard you coming
And thrown a rope over the wall
You wanted to be flying
You wanted to have it all
But you left your face in the water
Where you thought it was only the moon
And though every bright star calls you ‘daughter’
You’ll forget how to talk to them soon…

Night builds its own castles
And lets you play Queen of them all
The games you learn here sleeping
Will teach you well beyond the wall
When you leave behind an empty garden
And a pool that remembers your face
For the wall you must scale is a high one
And beyond lies a far stranger place
