The Green Scarf

10th March 1995 at 00:00
Alice in her bedroom Mummy on the stair Daddy in the stables Saddling the bay mare.

Alice sees the lady Hears her silver laugh Sees the golden hair caught up In a grass-green scarf.

Alice at the window Two riders cross the moat Sees the green scarf knotted At her daddy's throat.

Alice in her bedroom Combs her long black hair Hears hoofbeats on the driveway And weeping on the stair.
