Story Behind the Song

The "chieri" is a supernatural being created by fantasy author Marion Zimmer Bradley and featured in her Darkover stories.

Lyrics

THE CHIERI

In the forest silver moonlight
Lit the branches like a flame
And drunk with Spring's enchantment,
Lightly down the path she came
Her voice trilled like a nighting bird
As she danced beneath the moon.
I longed to join her madness,
And feared I would, too soon.
On and on, through starlight
And shadow till dawn.
And though I'll not regret her,
I swear I'll not forget her too soon.

Her face was pale in moonlight,
As I looked into her eyes,
They were soft and grey as mist is
Upon the nighting sky.
Her fingers pale and cool they were,
And upon my body played.
In the ecstasy of dreaming,
I loved her as we lay.
On and on, until the night was gone.
And though I'll not regret her,
I swear I'll not forget her too soon.

In the forest silver moonlight
Lights the branches like a flame.
And I'll stand beneath their enchanted fire
Until she comes again.
I'll pine away for the beauty
Of her voice, her glowing ease,
And her silver silken hair
That flowed across me like a breeze.
On and on, I'll wait until she comes.
And though I'll not regret her,
I swear I'll not forget her too soon.
