Music: Euge Caeli.
By Thomas Tallis. Sequenced by
M.J. Starke.

Kristina is a peaceful mountain lake
Reflecting rows of ancient evergreens.
In her, although she's only in her teens,
Sing dark serenities that blissful ache
To melt into the emptiness of skies.
Innocent, she feels the full-moon tide,
Near mad with longing, deep within her glide,
Although above a windless stillness lies.
