PRINCESS OF THE NIGHT

My most recent artwork – for sale at Hallgreen Castle.

Princess of the Night

 She used to be an iron horse twenty years ago


Used to bring the mail to me through the ice and snow

I sat alone and watched her steaming through the night

Ninety tons of thunder riding up the sky

 

She was the Princess of the Night


We saw the writing on the wall

She was the Princess of the Night

I’d take a ride across the sky, sky, sky, sky

Inspired by lyrics from Saxon

 

 


NEOS AT HALLGREEN CASTLE OPEN UNTIL SUNDAY 17TH SEPTEMBER
