Stella
William J. Hall - July, 1987

  1 Flowers and a photograph
  2 Watch her walk across the room
  3 Like the way she turns to laugh
  4 Does as only she can do
  5 As she put the moments by
  6 Her colors scatter where they lie
  7 Her story rides a painted sky
  8 Again
 
  9 She says she knows a way
  10 Beyond the power of words to tell
  11 She don't live in yesterday
  12 Says the present serves her well
  13 Honey falling on her skin
  14 She reaches out to take me in
  15 Shivers like a leaf in the harvest wind
  16 Again
 
  17 And winter towns
  18 Go slowly by
  19 And the wind shifts down
  20 She don't stop to wonder why
 
  21 Daybreak brings her light
  22 Morning overtakes the moon
  23 Tells me it will be all right
  24 She knows we'll be leaving soon
  25 Stella has her blue dress on
  26 Wonders where the evening's gone
  27 Smiles to herself in the growing dawn
  28 Again
 
  29 And the winter towns
  30 Go slowly by
  31 And the wind shifts down
  32 She don't stop to wonder why
 
  33 Flowers and a photograph
  34 Watch her walk across the room
