1. This is a riddle song from the second book of Donzalo's Destiny, 'The Shadow of Asak.' Jola sings it to Donzalo following the first time they make love.

    Answer These

    What shadow does a shadow cast?
    How long does forever last?
    Where sleeps the wind before it blows?
    Where is love when it goes?

    If I passed beyond the sea,
    would you wait and watch for me?
    If I crossed the mountains high,
    would you pray for wings to fly?

    Who am I without my name?
    Are the gods or we to blame?
    Why must dreams fade with the dawn?
    Where is love once it is gone?

    If I passed beyond the sea,
    would you wait and watch for me?
    If I crossed the mountains high,
    would you pray for wings to fly?

    Could a man count every star?
    Why are all things as they are?
    Do you love me when you sleep?
    Answer these or silence keep.
