I am Chandra
a pale face, miss
roses and viols and daisies
my mouth remain silent
muted, unheard
for I can’t speak a word

I am Chandra
I see everything seen
I reveal when I’m mean
without words I gaze
how loves gather their cloth
run off in a haze

I am Chandra
a wicked wizard cast a spell
for all lovers woe and well
I used to have words
now all I have is light
my song he gave to birds / he took my song and gave it to birds

I am Chandra
accused to be jealous
guess if I’m furious
why do they slander
the pearl of the night sky
which no one can render?

I am Chandra
mostly misunderstood
if only I could
sing the woe of my heart
put words to my menu
and direct a new part

but I am Chandra
a pale face, miss
roses and viols and daisies
my mouth remain silent
muted, unheard
for I can’t speak a word

I am Chandra…
