I damn you, demon,
You chanter of black incantations;
Carpenter of funeral gowns.
Why have you clad me not?

Am I too loud a posture to drown
In the quiet of your dark cashmere?
Or are your services reserved
For young girls with the shiny eyes?

I'll not ask you to carry me;
I'll swim your river unaided.
I'll not ask you to open gates;
Just not to close them when you leave.

I'll sing your praises, louder than hers,
If only you'll let me stalk your shady gondola.
Llama and respect for the first to guess the mythological theme ^^

I'm not familiar with the myth, but this is great without the prior knowledge!

That wasn't my intent, but I can see it now, it makes the reference to clothing more than just a metaphor. Thanks for bringing it to my attention :D
