Girl With April In Her Eyes by jerry8448 Girl With April In Her Eyes by jerry8448
~o~ The Girl With April In Her Eyes ~o~

Inspired by a song by Chris de Burgh. You can listen to it here: [link]

There once was a king, who called for the spring,
For his world was still covered in snow,
But the spring had not been, for he was wicked and mean,
In his winter-fields nothing would grow;
And when a traveller called seeking help at the door,
Only food and a bed for the night,
He ordered his slave to turn her away,
The girl with April in her eyes... [...]

She rode through the night till she came to the light,
Of a humble man's home in the woods,
He brought her inside, by the firelight she died,
And he buried her gently and good;
Oh the morning was bright, all the world was snow-white,
But when he came to the place where she lay,
His field was ablaze with flowers on the grave,
Of the girl with April in her eyes. [...]
