Loreena McKennitt – "All Souls Night" (1991)

"Somewhere in a hidden memory Images float before my eyes Of fragrant nights of straw and of bonfires And dancing till the next sunrise. … Standing on the bridge that crosses The river that goes out to the sea The wind is full of a thousand voices They pass by the bridge and me … I can see lights in the distance Trembling in the dark cloak of night Candles and lanterns are dancing, dancing A waltz on All Souls Night."

"To weep is to make less the depth of grief." – William Shakespeare from "Henry VI" "We scale the face of reason To find at least one sign That could reveal the true dimensions Of life lest we forget And maybe it's easier to withdraw from life With all of it's misery and wretched lies Away from harm … In our vain pursuit Of life for one's own end Will this crooked path Ever cease to end?"
