My crane wife arrived at my door in the moonlight/All star bright & tongue-tied/I took her in/We were married and bells rang sweet for our wedding/And our bedding was ready when we fell in/ We were poorly, our fortunes fading/And how she vowed me she could bring it back/But I was greedy, I was vain & I forced her to weaving/On a cold loom, in a closed room, with down wove/ There's a bend in the wind & it rakes at my heart/There is blood in the thread & it rakes at my heart. -The Decemberists
