The Hangman's Branch (Jeff)

A silent, side-long glance he stole.
The hangman's withered branch won't hold
An owl alighted to the trees - we cried and fell down to our knees

In sadness is a rising flood, with a causeway kissing cursed blood, that flows below

A Spanish horse rode through his dream, with a rider sent there to redeem he found the knife that killed a crow,
and cut the branch that hung down low

And resting near the willow root, the leaves were shifting underfoot from the sand and blood below.

There was never any more inception than there is now,

Nor any more youth or age than there is now,

And will never be any more perfection than there is now,

Nor any more heaven or hell than there is now.
