A Tale

The splendor of this autumn night
Across the meadows a golden light
The windows gleam through the leaves
Of woodbine hanging from the eaves
A place of sleep, a place of dreams
Far among the wooded hills

There in the warmth, the fire's glow
Fills the room large and low
And on the spinet's ivory keys
Plays its strange melodies
Silence outside the quaint abode
Save the rushing wind down the road

Then the voices from within
Bring to life the roadside inn
The music plays through the pause
Of laughter, joy and applause
The lament, the triumph and the pain
Lulled back into peace again

The tales told at this roadside inn
Now distant as misty dreams
Written in the pages of a book
Where by chance the living still may look
And see the days from long ago
Once flowers now beneath the snow

Deleyaman is a French-American band founded in 2000 by Aret Madilian, Beatrice Valantin and Gerard Madilian. Their sound can't be pigeon-holed into a single genre, it has been described as enigmatic and poetic. They are the first alternative band to have included the ancient wind instrument, the duduk, in their permanent line-up.
