Purgatorio Coronation, August, AS XXXV (2000)

Performed at Siobhan of Cloverdell's
Elevation To the Estate of Duchess

Mooncast shadow flows over firelight,
Tokens born of our lady’s toil,
Will she wander throughout the camp this night
Bearing favors for one and all?
Siobhan, oh Siobhan, Will we see your like e’er again?
When will you rule from the throne of the West again?
Sparkling sunlight shines through the misty morn’
Peers and children begin to stir
Gracious greetings she gives, for none she’ll scorn
She embraces each one in turn
Siobhan, oh Siobhan, Will we see your like e’er again?
When will you rule from the throne of the West again?
Drummers, dancers unite in even-time
In their circle she takes her place
And entrances as sure as flowing wine
Shows us beauty displayed with grace
Siobhan, oh Siobhan, Will we see your like e’er again?
When will you rule from the throne of the West again?
Regal bearing before her armored host
Warrior’s worship and valor’s store
Not a foeman is left alive to boast;
She’s inspired her folk in war
Siobhan, oh Siobhan, Will we see your like e’er again?
When will you rule from the throne of the West again?
