Lament of Ash Mothers

Lament dear wife of G’desh
He fills you and leaves you
Child born black as coal
With temperament and appetite as father

Lament dear wife of G’desh
You burn out raising children of flame
They leave you as ash to blow away
When you are of no more use

Lament dear wife of G’desh
The desert calls you daughter
As man and delven scorn mother and child
Camps on the sands become your prison

Lament, Mother of Ash, Lament
