about

lyrics

Oh Smiling, Daughter
you grew wings to conquer-
The thrill of your feet,
stomp on mountain dirt-
Into the hemlock trees,
For your rebirth.

She closes her eyes
to a stormy sky.

"Here in the twilight,
cold and gray,
Lifeless, but beautiful, she lay,
And from the sky serene and far,
A voice fell like a falling star"-

Oh Courageous, Brother
you held our daughters-
Through gale and fear,
you battled for control-
But the wind whipped,
Carrying away Lizzie’s soul.

"Here in the twilight,
cold and gray,
Lifeless, but beautiful, she lay,
And from the sky serene and far,
A voice fell like a falling star- Excelsior,
Excelsior!”

Morning light, they carried her body
down the mountain.
To Glenn House and then,
Kennebunk Town.
The coroner and I, remarked
on the smile upon her face.
Lizzie, my daughter, once
Full of energy and grace.
