Wow, what a great DPD, isn't it? This calls for a celebration of verse and filk. Let this filk be the first to wallow in the utter goodness of this drawing. It's based on Simon & Garfunkel's "Scarborough Fair/Canticle", but I couldn't find a good title for the filk. The parenthesized sections are to be sung between lines of the preceeding verse in an alternating fashion - one line of parenthesized verse after each line of unparenthasized verse (hear the original to see what I'm talking about)

Filk - Small Feathers
With apologies to Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel

What're you drawing with a black piece of coal
Dark as night and staining your hands
The floor beneath you's rough and so cold
Chilled by snow of far glacial lands

Tell me what sorrow has blackened your eyes
What curst worry's frozen your hands
A teacher's vow which turned into lies
Does your soul still labor to mend?

(On the side of her bed she dreamily draws
Tracing the contours of figures undrawn
But blankets and bedclothes can't keep her a-snug
When she remembers the sight of her guide)

Tell me what do you draw on that page
Which is blank as the look of the blind
Those hollow scenes that you chose to stage
They still haunt the range of your mind

(On the side of her bed, a scattering of leaves
Trying to sketch what she saw in a dream
But no such dream come to her mind)

Tell me why is it you're hiding your craft
As to guard your vulnerable soul
Sealing tight with no hole be left
to keep out the wind that blew you before

(Snow piles softly in front of her window
As she tries to get all her thought on the page
And to picture a dream she's long ago forgotten)

What are you drawing with a black piece of coal
Dark as night and staining your hands
The floor beneath you's rough and so cold
Chilled by snow of far glacial lands
