Sierra’s King’s Quest 5 – The Weeping Willow

Here’s a special treat for you this Valentine’s – my little cover version of “The Weeping Willow” song, from my favourite Sierra game King’s Quest 5!

This one is a piece of my heart (and childhood) and so very special to me.

The willow tree in this story is actually an enchanted princess. And she misses her fiancΓ©!

One day they were out for a walk in the forest, when an evil witch appeared. She took a shine to her groom-to-be (who wasn’t interested.) Jealous of the princess’s good looks, she stole her heart, turned it to gold and her into a willow tree.

The only way for the princess to become human again is by getting her heart back. Her only comfort until then is her harp and this little melody she plays on it, over and over again…it’s short but very magical.

Anyway, click here to listen and/or download my cover version of the song she sings. I hope you’ll like it!

If you’re weeping like the willow this Valentine’s, I’m sending you a massive hug and tonnes of love.
And if not, I’m also sending you a hug and lots of love! Happy Universal Love Day –Β  I hope it’s sweet and magical for you <3

    I like this a lot. I wish you cold do an extended version for your next album. But for now I just looped it 4 times into a single mp3 for lengthening it.
    Thank you for sharing.
    Happy Valentine’s Day Mira!

  • My cherished daughter, I pray you’re not alone this valentine’s day like me. May you get the love you need darling.

    • Mira Morningstar says:

      Aw, nothing wrong with being alone on Valentine’s! Treat and pamper yourself <3 To me it's a day of universal love anyway, not just for couples. My audience (this includes you!), friends, family and animal companions. I feel very loved by all of you, so I really can't complain <3

  • Tim says:

    You should read the book “the shape changer’s wife” by sharon shinn. It’s sort of the opposite of this but still a cool book. Thank you for the song, it is a very nice one and you’re singing is lovely as ever. Happy Valentine’s.

    • Mira Morningstar says:

      Thanks for the recommendation Tim! The book sounds intriguing. Aw glad to hear you like the song πŸ™‚ Have a wonderful Valentine’s!
