Flowers (Hollow Hills), oil on card, 16 x 17 cm



Painted to the accomaniment of Bauhaus`s splendid Hollow Hills, which appeard on their second LP, Mask:



Ancient Earth work fort and barrow 

Discreetly hide their secret abodes 
The most fearful hide deep inside 
And venture not there upon Yuletide 
For invasion of their hollow hills 
The music hold and Oberon fill 
Is surely recommended not 
For fear of death in fear of rot 

Hollow hills 
Hollow hills 
Hollow hills 
Hollow hills 

Baleful sounds and wild voices ignored 
In luck disaster the one reward 
Violated sanctity of supermen's hills 
So sad love lies there still 

So sad 
So sad 

Hollow hills 
Hollow hills 

Witches too and goblin too and speckled sills 
Lament repent oh mortal you 

So sad 
So sad 

In the right dosage, the gothic is truly a delight.
