lyrics

16. Unquiet

In the sea mist
Strong hills hush
Soften and go silent
The wind lies down
On the glassy bay
And sleek boats slacken
On their oily chains.
Often a darting seabird calls
Shrieks not of laughter
Not of pain
Which seek but find no echo
In the black hill’s bracken
Nor on the grey stone lane.
It is the purple evening
That time when unquiet minds
Lie still and say
This bright day is done
And watch a hundred tattered crows
Start flocking into the wet woods
To wait for night.
