Robin Song

from by Lindsay Clark

lyrics

I saw the brightest orange of spring / A robin told me there is more to come / She flew from air to branch and there she sung / "Although you feel that all is known / your future is not known." / I could not leave your happy home / in ebony and ivory keys and tones / that I hear ring like bells out on the path / of filament and sunken oak and marshes washed in loam. / A hummingbird is smaller than my heart / and emerald beats in rhythm as we part / such tenderness I wish that I could know / like a broken branch is fragile / upon the shaking ground / Evening comes to save me from my fate, / or seal it in the moon as passing grace / a message that I carry on from here / "Be patient for the sky to clear / and see what takes it's place. / I saw the brightest orange of spring / A robin told me there is more to come / She flew from air to branch and there she sung / "Although you feel that all is known / your future is not known."
