Katarina’s House

Once this was a mansion that was filled with light
And elegant couples came from the city to stay for the night
Now Katarina stands tall against the window frame
Staring out on the garden
The frosts are coming
Soon it will be winter again

All the rooms are empty in Katarina’s house
Behind the granite walls of Katarina’s house
All the rooms are empty in Katarina’s house
Now the horses go unfed and the dogs howl the dogs howl

And here is the bedroom where they once made love
The floorboards creak and shafts of light catch the dust
Disturbed by Katarina’s pacing
Once she had a child, a clever blonde haired girl
In the garden they built a rope and wooden swing
No one plays there now
It rattles in the wind

I once tried to reach her but her sadness was too much
Sterner hands than mine have failed before they gave up
Now the children of the village won’t trespass in that place of sorrow
And the dogs they howl

All the rooms are empty in Katarina’s house
There is no shelter in Katarina’s house
There stands the mistress silent of Katarina’s house
There is no mercy in Katarina’s house

And the dogs they howl
