Wendigo

from by Cave Mouth

lyrics

My Father is late
returning home

The sun is soon to set
the windows have gathered
fresh frost

My Grandfather scrapes
the panes clear
with the side of his axe

He stands at the window
as night falls fast

My Mother she wishes
we lived closer to town

She's afraid of the wolves
and what they may have done

Grandfather says I told him not to go
for I heard the song of the Wendigo

He will come home Wendigo
or never or never or never

He will come home Wendigo
or never or never

The night is all storms
when Father comes home

His face is nothing I know

Through the window we watch
him stalking the house

For hours the door rattles
before he learns how to get in
