2. Gaby’s song

And now the first fat sleepy bees
Are sipping blossoms
In the sunshine and the breeze

And lazy planes chalk-mark their way
Across this blue and golden day

She rides a red bike with a basket on
Carries flowers, wears a hat
And freewheels in the sun

He’s held in stillness as she hurries by
Caught by the shadows and the laughter in her eyes

And Gaby is this what you mean
The metal days will turn to green
And suddenly the light will shift
And you will feel your spirit lift
I see it now; now I see

The sea goes silver as the big moon climbs
And last birds scatter
Over the deep Spring tide

Long days come and long days fly
But night still throws so many stars into the sky

And Gaby is this what you mean
The truth may not always be seen
And though the days will surely race
The truth will one day find its place

I see it now; now I see


from A short stay in longevity, released May 25, 2013
