All in the Western Land

Circle around around the house
circle around and back
everything burning burning burning
everything burning black
O who will break the circle
O who will loose my hand
O who will be my lover
all in the western land

Open the circle around and out
and part and swing and pass
down along the valleys
and the yellow hills of grass

So make and break the circle
so take and loose my hand
so love and leave me dancing
all in the western land

--- Ursula K. Le Guin
