Lady Cascade

Lady cascade in your cold satin frills
You collect rainbows beneath frowning hills
Your soft misty breath that kisses the trees
Brings birds a singing in blissful fleets

From dawn to dusk you dance in grace
Awaiting the silver moon’s embrace
Your laughter echoes across the meadows
Summons moon fairies from behind the shadows

The sun your father he beams at your poise
Pride of your mother you fill her with joy
Your sister stream and your brother the breeze
They all surround you and make time freeze 

Lady cascade how I wish I could stay
Lie on the grass and adore you all day
But dark city streets do beckon me away
With you in my heart I leave if I may
