The Mystic's Dream

a clouded ______ on an earthly night

a voiceless ____ in an ageless light
sings at the coming ______

where the heart moves _______
there that my heart is longing for, all for, for _____ of you
_________ hands on an ivy wall
nestled in the emerald ________
the eyes declare a truce _______
then it draws me ________
deep in the desert _________
sand melts in pools __________

so it's there my _________ due
clutched by _______ of the night
now _________, feel you move
and every breath, breath is _____
and so it's there my homage's ______
clutched by the still of ________
even ________ feels so near, all for, all for the love of you

CHORUS: a clouded dream on an earthly night
hangs upon the crescent moon
a voiceless song in an ageless light
sings at the coming dawn
birds in flight are calling there where the heart moves the stones
there that my heart is longing for,
all for, for the love of you


songwriter: Loreena McKennitt

performed by: Loreena McKennitt

date released: 1994 by Loreena McKennitt

SEE: "Tango to Evora" for a short biography of Loreena McKennitt.

From the album, "The Mask and The Mirror", this song is exemplary of McKennitt's explorations into medieval religion and spirituality. To the medieval mind, the mirror was the doorway through which the soul freed itself. Thus, polishing the mirror was a transformative exercise to refine the soul.

In her album songbook McKennitt follows the trail of the medieval minstrels of Ireland, through the troubadours of France, crossing over the Pyrenees to Andalusia and then into to Morocco. First stop: Stonehenge and the the other mystical places of England. "The Mystic's Dream" was used in the miniseries, "The Mists of Avalon."
