Here is Nico’s song for Andy, ‘The Falconer’ from her masterpiece Desertshore

And a wonderful version from from Philippe Garrel’s  Le Lit de la vierge

The falconer is sitting on
His summer sand at dawn
Unlocking flooded silver cages
And with a silver din arise
All the lovely faces
And the lovely silver traces erase
My empty pages

The falconer is sitting on
His summer sand at dawn
Beside his singing silver waves
And his dancing rebel race
That compose ahead of timeless time
A sound inside my candle light

Father child
Angels of the night
Silver friend
my candlelight

Father child
Angels of the night
Silver friend
my candlelight

The falconer is sitting on
His summer sand at dawn
Unlocking flooded silver cages
And with a silver din arise
All the lovely faces
And the lovely silver traces erase
My empty pages
