Wanderling no.8: “My Song is Done”

A young girl living in a valley below the Himalayas is saved from the attack on her village by the protective spell-song of Snow Leopard. The magic cat teaches the child the secret songs of the valley until she is trained as guardian in her stead, and becomes Young Snow Leopard when the old cat leaps into the stars.

Story’s country of origin – UK

Based on the modern children’s book written and illustrated by Jackie Morris, The Snow Leopard (London: Frances Lincoln Ltd., 2007).

V1
Shadow-dappled through the snow
I tread on padded paws
Wiser than you’ll ever know
A dream in every pause

LIFT
Like a ghost among you
Never heard and never seen
What I wish becomes true
What will be has ever been

CHORUS
She will come
When my song is done

V2
Sacred cat who sings awake
The light from nothingness
I am she who yearns to make
A dream of silences

LIFT
Like a ghost among you
Never heard and never seen
What I wish becomes true
What will be has ever been

CHORUS
She will come
When my song is done

BRIDGE
I am Snow Leopard Girl
Though the memory of the girl is fading now
High above the world
Singing to the stars and waiting, waiting now
I am waiting, I am waiting now..

CHORUS
She will come
When my song is done
For I have sung
It all undone
And she has come
Now my song is done
My song is done
