A simple song. Flowers and birds and spring's awakening.



A hayrick by the river a kite up on the rise
Kapella and the pipistrelle pirouette just for the skies
Comparisons with angels all lost upon the mean
Me I’ll beat the sun just me and celandine

Precarious the willow, hedgerow and the shore
None to let it slip what you’re down here for
Strike a light and show me a dry and dusty scene
The gate is always open for me and celandine

I’ll swallow the ocean of all I’ve said and done
Of time that is past or passing or to come
Wanting Bilberry and flaxweed
And flowers that are sung
Me and celandine, we’ll walk beneath the sun

Banished to the battlements with only love and war
Guns to sheer the mountains for settling old scores
Ragged robin and valerian I know where I’ve been
Come with me cos there’s a place for us and celandine


from Birds of Plenty, released February 17, 2020
