Track Name: Ave evA!
“A fairy tale for my little elf, from your Poppy with a love greater than death”

words and music: Terry Scott Taylor

This is not goodbye, life still goes on

A book is open and the curtain’s drawn

On the dance of spheres, in love’s revue

And the choir of creation sings this song to you

“Ave Eva!”



If I should trip and fall down a rabbit hole

We might meet again by the lamp post in the snow

Or if I go missing in a mystery

Things may not be all that they appear to be

You’ll find clues in a book called “The Golden Key”

There at the end of the rainbow



Or my dear if you hear I was never found,

Lost at sea when my old battered ship went down,

Remember Water Babies like you and me

Can never ever drown



Ring the bells! All will be well! And…

Ave Eva!

Wear the light-bright gown of your innocence

Ave Eva!

And gather up the leaves of rememberance

Ave Eva!

Then toss them on the back of The Northern Wind

They'll lead you to The Well At The World's End

And a doormat by a door in a willow tree, reading

“Ave Eva!”

Surprise! You’ve arrived just in time for tea

And the door is unlocked with your golden key



Inside the tree is a fire in the fireplace,

A candle glowing in a window draped in lace,

Your favorite books on a bookshelf by the winding stairs,

And in the threadbare arms of an old armchair

Perhaps you’ll discover that I’m reading there

Beneath a portrait of your face



Ring the bells! All will be well! And…

Ave Eva!

Follow Poppy’s old Mad Hatter’s hat

Ave Eva!

Dancing on a zephyr’s feral back

Ave Eva!

To a sailing ship in calm waters moored

And a brave, regal mouse with his trusty sword

Mouse and crew will bow and welcome you aboard,

All hands on deck in one accord cheering

“Ave Eva!”

He’ll spread his map and speak of plans

For setting sail beyond Lenten Lands



Through a mirror is a meadow you will cross until

You find a moonlit door in the face of a mossy hill

Imagine I’m inside, or maybe running free

In a Secret Garden beyond the sea

Or busy stringing lights on God’s Christmas tree

Where love’s built a castle in a happily (ever after)

Eva you will find me ever after

Eva you will find me ever after

Eva you will find me



Ring the bells! All will be well!

Ave Eva!

Ring the bells! All will be well!

Ave Eva!

Ring the bells! All will be well!

Ave Eva!
