There is a gray thing that lives in the tree-tops
None know the horror of its sight
Save those who meet death in the wilderness
But one is enabled to see
To see branches move at its passing
To hear at times the wail of black laughter
And to come often upon mystic places
Places where the thing has just been.
Performed by the Kenari Saxophone Quartet. The title comes from one of the ephesia grammata, used as early as the 5th century BCE in Greece and continuing into the common era. As such it has no meaning, but was thought to carry great power if inscribed on something and worn about the neck.
