  1. Monkey Puzzle

Lyrics

I only know she came and went
Like troutlets in a stream
A floating fancy of the night
A pale midsummer’s dream

A cradle rocking by itself
Without a child asleep
A scratching sound behind the oak
A cold breath on my cheek

I’ve never been this close before
Or heard the creaking of this door into an empty room
And something flying in the dark
A phantom playing out her part in this mystery play

A rustling and a deathly cold
Whose spirit haunts this place?
A monkey puzzled by the tree
Resists his fall from grace.

I only know she came and went
Like troutlets in a stream
A floating fancy of the night
A pale midsummer’s dream
