She would move the mountain

So that the wind could blow into the valley.

She would hold the sun in her hand

So that fear of darkness could be stalled.

She would freeze the swollen river

So that celebration of life could continue downstream.

She would tame the thunder

So that hymns from eternity could be heard in silence.

One morning she left quietly

Leaving the power of magic for everyone to use it.
