One night I burned the house I loved - Sundays wedding
Just found this picture on the street. This size strecht onto wooden frameOne Night I Burned the house I loved
One night I burned the house I loved,
It lit a perfect ring
In which I saw some weeds and stone
Beyond - not anything.
Certain creatures of the air
Frightened by the night,
They came to see the world again
And perished in the light.
Now I sail from sky to sky
And all the blackness sings
Against the boat that I have made
Of mutilated wings.
-Leonard Cohen (Parasites of Heaven, 1966)
