Of Veils and Movements
By Muninn’s Kiss

A heart black veil,
Quickly she dances,
First born,
An ancient youth,
Twirling round,
A black veil spining,
Playful dances,
Spinning youth.

A pure white veil,
Now she’s walking,
Second born,
But mother of all,
Hand in hand,
Her consort-lover,
Sex and love,
and marriage vows.

A blood red veil,
Now she’s standing,
Third born,
And oldest still,
All is done,
But none is finished,
Knife in hand,
The altar bare.
