about

Lyrics Ref: Walt Whitman from "The Mystic Trumpeter"

lyrics

The fretting world, the streets, the noisy hours of day withdraw,
A holy calm descends like dew upon me,
I walk in cool refreshing night the walks of Paradise,
I scent the grass, the moist air and the roses;
Thy song expands my numb'd imbonded spirit, thou freest,
launchest me,
Floating and basking upon heaven's lake.


--- W. Whitman

Dear Hills

We carved the basin.
This stone left here by Masses of ice by
Gone now but this
Stone still here this
Powerful song
Fills it of water each
Spring we are fed
by the hills
We fill ourselves
With the water this
Basin remembers
that old time of ice
When it gushed
Of melted snows
We carved the
Powerful words
Of admission
My strength cometh from the hills
