Two Sisters: A Ballad by Reel

There were two sisters in a tower.
Spinning, spinning, spins the wheel.
One was sweet, the other sour.
Spinning, spinning, endless reel.

The two girls walked by the river.
Spinning, spinning, spins the wheel.
The elder pushed in her sister.
Spinning, spinning, endless reel.

She didn’t fall, instead she flew.
Spinning, spinning, spins the wheel.
A fairer sight you never knew.
Spinning, spinning, endless reel.

The elder tried to hold her fast.
Spinning, spinning, spins the wheel.
Casting each spell that she could cast.
Spinning, spinning, endless reel.

The younger sister was hurt sore.
Spinning, spinning, spins the wheel.
And she tried to win free once more.
Spinning, spinning, endless reel.

The elder’s fingers sought her throat.
Spinning, spinning, spins the wheel.
Having her sure, began to gloat.
Spinning, spinning, endless reel.

The younger struggled best she might,
Spinning, spinning, spins the wheel.
Then weary she gave up the fight.
Spinning, spinning endless reel.

Now the elder knew she had won.
Spinning, spinning, spins the wheel.
She loosed her grip as all was done.
Spinning, spinning, endless wheel.

The younger tried one final try.
Spinning, spinning, spins the wheel.
She broke away into the sky.
Spinning, spinning, endless wheel.

As a raven she fled away.
Spinning, spinning, spins the wheel.
Her feathers mangled in the fray.
Spinning, spinning, endless reel.

Weakened, she whispers on the breeze.
Spinning, spinning, spins the wheel.
Her feathers fall into the seas.
Spinning, spinning, endless reel.

Her empty voice and feathers three.
Spinning, spinning, spins the wheel.
Will some wanderer hear her plea?
Spinning, spinning, endless reel.
