The Martin and Rose Shrine

See the roving river run
Over hill and dale
To a secret forest place,
O my heart, Noonvale.
Look for me at dawning
When the sun's reborn
In the silent beauty
Twixt the night and morn.
Wait till the lark ascends
And skies are blue.
There where the rainbow ends
I will meet you

~Laterose of Noonvale~


That liddle mousey-maid be locked in Marthen's 'eart,
and thurr she'm bound to stay.


Now playing:  "The Rose" by Bette Midler
