Out on the tar plains

the glides are moving

all looking for

a new place to hide

You sit beside me

so newly charming

sweating dewdrops glisten

freshing your side



And the sun drips down

bedding heavy behind

the front of your dress

all shadowy lined

and the droning engine

throbs in time

with your beating heart



Way down the lane away

living for another day

the aphids swarm up

in the drifting haze

swim seagull in the sky

towards some hollow

western isle

my envied lady

holds you fast

in her gaze



And the sun drips down

bedding heavy behind

the front of your dress

all shadowy lined

and the droning engine

throbs in time

with your beating heart



Sing Blue Silver



And watching lovers part

I feel you smiling

what glass splinters

lie so deep in your mind

to tear out from your eyes

with a word to stiffen

brooding lies

and I'll only watch

you leave me

further behind



And the sun drips down

bedding heavy behind

the front of your dress

all shadowy lined

and the droning engine

throbs in time

with your beating heart



Sing Blue Silver

Sing, Sing Blue Silver


I watch, and am as a sparrow alone upon the house top.
