The winter queen looks up and sighs:
I wish that I controlled the skies
For up above is where to stand
To rule those who walk on the land
The summer queen flies by and sees
Her realm of butterflies and bees
And said, I wish I lived below
Instead I sail where breezes blow
And the rain came down
It tried to seep
into the ground
But water deep
Pecked and poked
And sodden soil
Began to roil
The prince of silence walks below
Inside a cave of ice and snow
He says "I wonder why?" but words
Are locked in glaciers never heard
The prince of music on guitar
Neglects to play a single bar
But music trapped inside his head
Resounds and fills the space instead
The winter queen looks up and sighs...
Phish.net is a non-commercial project run by Phish fans and for Phish fans under the auspices of the all-volunteer, non-profit Mockingbird Foundation.
This project serves to compile, preserve, and protect encyclopedic information about Phish and their music.
The Mockingbird Foundation is a non-profit organization founded by Phish fans in 1996 to generate charitable proceeds from the Phish community.
And since we're entirely volunteer – with no office, salaries, or paid staff – administrative costs are less than 2% of revenues! So far, we've distributed just about $1,500,000 to support music education for children – hundreds of grants in all 50 states, with more on the way.
