Bramble

Bramble

Tough-tender hedge-tease :

Soft berries’ bloody embrace.

Your bitter-sweet kiss.

The Call

the call This is my inaugural post on “Words From The Edge” and I’m just a little bit excited about publishing my first lyrics! These are the lyrics for a song I am writing as part of my 365 Days Of Adventure project.

 

The Call

Verse 1

Where the sun sails high

And the winds they blow dry,

So the buds and the blooms start to sing.

*

Where the mountains rise

And the seas sing lullabies

To the birds that bear dreams on their wings.

Refrain

I’ll meet you there

With my hands in the air,

A dance in my heart

And my soul without care!

*

Where the trees grow tall

And the leaves, they never fall

Where the dawn of the dusk is rising.

Verse 2

Where Hope rides the breeze

And icy waters, they never freeze,

Where the fish swim the strawberry forest.

*

Where the bluebells ring

For the Lavender King,

Where the old are young and fearless.

Refrain

I’ll meet you there

With my hands in the air,

A dance in my heart

And my soul without care!

*

Where hanging stars in minor key

Sing the song of you and me,

Where the moon whispers all of her secrets.

Verse 3 

Close your eyes, it’s late,

I’ll be waiting at the gate

Where the coracle willows are grown.

*

By the crimson lake

Where the water skippers skate,

Where the seeds of sweet sleep are sown.

Refrain

I’ll meet you there

With my hands in the air,

A dance in my heart

And my soul without care!

*

Where the fireflies burn bright,

Where souls sink soft into the night,

Meet me there and I’ll row you safe home.
