Willow Maid – Troiku Variation – August 30, 2015

Wind and willow

Wind and willow

young willow maid
calling to her lost lover
standing by the water

young willow maid
tears sit on her eye lashes
watches the storm

she sings her sad song
calling to her lost lover
who’ll never return

ah – no sails no sign
there’s only young willow maid
standing by the water

    • I love this variation … for some reason I found it slightly more difficult than the original form … but I think it’s more natural in your variation … I’ve always had a bit of a problem putting the long line at the beginning of a ku.
