hide and seek

Larkspur blue clementine sky
cotton ache to sorrow's sigh
respite & repair wounded love's flight
to tie to bind, await the coming night

sing to me of linen loose & raw
songs unleashed upon the devils claw
summer heat bears down to corn and furrowed row
rising smoke rings of river's willow

raise ye up upon shoulders brown with rain
raise up the land, raise up voices tame
fight the dirge--the weariness left to bind
come the night, sleep is what we'll find

what we seek becomes not the treasure found
where we place our hearts binds fast and sound
to bone, to marrow this land cries out for one
the moon holds us captive hidden from the sun
