Come and Play

Come and play with us they sang
Running through the forest paths
Like a bell their voices rang
Come and play and dance and laugh!

All the children heard the tune
From their parents they would run
Twin girls falling from the moon
Promised treasures, secrets, fun

Come and dance upon the earth
In our merry, dark parade
We alone may know your worth
All the choices you have made

Come and dance among the stars
Find new homes in our embrace
We are what the world debars
Falling down from dazzling space

Come and play they called each child
We are lost and so forlorn
Be with us so free and wild
We’re the stars you wish upon

Come and play they so beguiled
From your family now be torn
Nothing left to reconcile
All the chidden lost and gone
