    Stay Away
The birds of Rhiannon sing away the pain...
Take away the darkness...
And sing you golden rainbows...
Just this minute the three birds are flying
In perfect formation...
The emerald, the gold and the snow white...
Because they have lived forever...
Down the forest pathway came the birds...
Singing their songs again...
He who wrote the sunshine...
And the skies full of gold...
The music filled the air and everything was fine...
Whatever happens to each one of us...
Will a wish be an answer...
You are and everything is fine...
If you listen carefully...
You just might hear the song of Rhiannon...
The birds are singing for us...
I can just hear them now...

"Maker of Birds" aka "Three Birds of Rhiannon"
The Three Birds of Rhiannon
A bird that is not mine...
Three birds that belong to her...
One emerald-green... one snow white...
One golden, flashing like a sunbeam through the night.
When at first he saw her...
It seemed she had no name
She sat alone, and it seemed to him...
That the light and her face were the same...
Her hair shone...
Streams of blond and gold
Her gown was no more than the water could cover...
This time would not come again
And the white mares dance...
And the Lady asked...
Take my wisdom with you... I shall ride...
And the birds are still singing...
And the song is now sweeping...
Like a silver... A silver shimmering flood...

Rhiannon
Rhiannon rings like a bell thru the night...
And wouldn't you love to love her...
She rules her life like a bird in flight...
Who will be her lover...
All your life you've never seen...
A woman taken by the wind
Would you stay if she promised you heaven...
Will you ever win...
She is like a cat in the dark
And then she is the darkness
She rules her life like a fine skylark...
And when the sky is starless...
Once in a million years a lady like her rises...
Take me like the wind, child...
Take me with the sky...
Dreams unwind...
Love's a state of mind...
Will you take me with you to the sky...
Rhiannon....
