Leronis' Dilemma

Lyrics: Maureen S. O'Brien
Music: "Lass of Loch Royal" -
but "Scarborough Fair" or "Clerk Saunders" will work, too.
Basis: Marion Zimmer Bradley's Darkover series

The Ghost Wind howls down from the Hills
The Ya-Men storm the gate
My love stands watch upon the wall
While I sit here and wait.

I've seen my love die on the wall
Or live - with another lass
And I've seen these futures fade into
Blue jewel and looking glass.

Cassilda, now I ask from you
Another fate to see
Than my love love another lass
Or die in love with me.

The Ghost Wind howls down from the Hills
The Ya-Men storm the gate
My love stands watch out on the wall
And I must choose his fate.
