Poem printed on the back cover:

Still falls the rain, the veils of darkness
shroud the blackened trees, which, contorted
by some unseen violence, shed their tired
leaves, and bend their boughs towards a grey
earth of severed bird wings. among the grasses,
poppies bleed before a gesticulating
death, and young rabbits, born dead in traps,
stand motionless, as though guarding the
silence that surrounds and threatens to engulf
all those that would listen. Mute birds, tired
of repeating yesterdays terrors, huddle
together in the recesses of dark corners,
heads turned from the dead, black swan tha
t floats upturned in a small pool in the hollow.
there emerges from this pool a faint sensual
mist, that traces its way upwards to caress the
chipped feet of the headless martyr's statue,
whose only achievement was to die to soon,
and who couldn't wait to lose. the cataract of
darkness form fully, the long black night
begins, yet still, by the lake a young girl
waits, unseeing she believes herself unseen,
she smiles, faintly at the distant tolling bell,
and the still falling rain.
