Wind chimes flicker
Brittle corners slide away
Smile back at the day
Like the mist before the sun
See the sadness run
Silk-spun web of pearls
Glistens in the grass in summer
North wind changes all the fields
To dazzling glass in winter
Come near to me
Hear this song I sing to you
Are you singing, too?
November 2006 : Written in 1968 while playing with the Flying Circus.
