lyrics

they built with bricks and mortar,
hammered wood and carven stone
and wrought the walls where ivy crawls
from crept-in cracks outgrown.

there’s something of a secret
sealed in ceaseless eulogies
but the fundaments that keep it cannot
help themselves but sing!

where now there hangs a mirror
sat a bureau in its stead and
erst was graced by letters laced
in blushing tones of red.

that same heritage of feeling had
its seeding in my heart and
will beat and keep repeating
until ilka star goes dark…

o, my love; my monument
and constant o’er the years.
o, my love; my easement as
the evenings disappear…
in ageing edifice, still, tender
touch our lips. forever fixt
in ae fond kiss.

in years from now (long since
we’ve slipped the surly bonds of earth)
it still remains, that sturdy strain
sown potent in the dirt.

where then will grow a forest
from the sprouting of two trees.
our old secret sung in chorus as
the wind stirs through our leaves.

o, my love; my monument
and constant o’er the years.
o, my love; my easement as
the evenings disappear…
in ageing edifice, still, tender
touch our lips. forever fixt
in ae fond kiss.

about

pilgrims, we Seattle, Washington

each of us is prone to wander while we are here abroad. and
whatever which way we wonder (be it all for gain or blunder),
still holes in hearts point, pining after all we can’t quite know.
onwards! upwards! ever fonder we grow! never dimmer
but refining all our brilliance, chasing that Light.

and so we sing. songs for hope; for joy.
for all of us our wayward, journeying on.
going home.
