HEAVEN'S DOVEKEEPER words by Terri Kay Emanuel
The following pop lyric inspired by Alice Hoffman's The Dovekeepers.
Exiled from the Valley of Thorns the womb of tears from which I was born
Star of the Sword in the nightsky as fortress soldiers arrive
Adonai we've run out of time.
Heretics dance around my flame tree my humble people
easy to conquer + defeat Arieh beast invade my rogue fantasy
my wanton heart unveil
for you to see.
My faith wandered all my treasure squandered I'm the assassin's daughter
Miracle of my existence spirit of my resistance
sandstorm believer silkworm weaver heaven's dovekeeper
