In the yellowgreen light of spring
Valerie sits on the side of the hill
Her knees in her arms
Her eyes on the water

The children dance in the sunlight
The sunlight dances on the water

There are no thoughts to have
There are no clouds in the spring sky
She can see the sunlight play on the water

On her lips a gypsy smile
In her hair tonight's moonlight hides
On the lake a boat either comes or goes.

No matter, no clouds, no thoughts,
No time.
