evangeline (fado)

upon the empty shore
of burning oleander,
clouds arising
evangeline,
song of angels falling,
song of sirens calling,
i hear you call to me.

voice of shining,
dancing waters,
shadow upon my crested prow,
i bolt my door but still you enter,
your voice from my throat
singing now.

serra da estrela:
holy mountain,
mountain of the morning star,
canto do mar:
ocean of the oceans singing
siren songs
drifting now,
dulce, dulce,
how sweet the sound
of your terrifying,
fearless love,
breaking
upon those fractured,
ageless shores,
how many voyagers
have you broken
upon that ancient rock,
the midnight heart
of your black
and midnight song?
