Lumbs Sister
Nurse With Wund
Some of the music from the film by Chris Wallis

Lumbs little sister
was as much willow and twig
as he was oak root
she was as supple
as he was stiff
and could bring the dead back to life
as easily as she could plait her hair
she kept the pieces
of his wooden heart
in the same place
she kept the day and night
each evening she goes to bathe
in the dark green spring
the dust she washes off
becomes the spark
in the eye of the child
the surge in the veins of the lover
the speck of hope
in the eyes of the dying
she dissolves arrives
in the softness of time
and inscribes their history in the ashes of hate
she weaves
the rope that guides the blind
from nothing to something
