Daphne

In strange rooms within stranger halls,

In strange rooms within stranger halls, the perfume of decay is inescapable.

Beneath the glass and the stars,

Beneath the glass and the stars, there is an unwilling witness to the cruelty of heaven.

She lies bound in silence,

She lies bound in silence, a captive to wicked circumstances,

She lies bound in silence, a captive to wicked circumstances, a prejudiced parable.

Haunted in the garden,

Haunted in the garden, enthroned in verdant velvet,

Haunted in the garden, enthroned in verdant velvet, arms aloft as Daphne before Apollo.

She is crowned in laurel,

She is crowned in laurel, consigned to the grave,

She is crowned in laurel, consigned to the grave, a victim of fatalistic affections.

In strange minutes nested within stranger hours,

In strange minutes nested within stranger hours, the gravity of tragedy is undeniable.

Adorned with cypress,

Adorned with cypress, nestled among lilies,

Adorned with cypress, nestled among lilies, her cold casket provides a false solace.

Veiled in her funeral shroud,

Veiled in her funeral shroud, dreaming of the rosy-fingered dawn,

Veiled in her funeral shroud, dreaming of the rosy-fingered dawn, she will sleep alone.
