Old Woman Census takerA
Death the TricksterA
when you're going alongB
don't you meet my babyC

Sniffing at newbornsD
smelling for the milkE
find salt find cornmealF
don't find my milkE

Anti Mother of the worldG
People CollectorA
on the beaches and bywaysH
don't meet that childI

The name he was baptizedJ
that flower he grows withK
forget it RemembererA
Lose it DeathL

Let wind and salt and sandM
drive you crazy mix you upN
so you can't tellO
East from WestP
-
or mother from childI
like fish in the seaC
And on the day at the hourA
find only meC
