Part I

So they asked her of desire

Of the pleasures she wants most

And expected an answer for themselves 

“She’ll say love or sex, money or fame

She’ll ask of power, to be queen of the game”

They’d answered their question 

Before she’d uttered a word 

And they were appalled when they heard and understood 

This girl’s want of the heart 

The thoughts she kept,

“I want to go up seven

to the place of angels

to the fields of heaven bright and blue 

Or maybe down seven 

Where there are dancing demons 

And darkness stands true 

Because there’s beauty there too.”
