walk among the dawn
witness breaks upon first light
first shadow, last refuge of night
amid the birds, morning report
our burning star, vessel of light
burning within, the spark of life
stroll between these beams
warmth from the mother’s hand
shall awake this slumber land
all is told and quick be gone
rises up, so ends the dawn
notes… I was being very specific using the word ‘report’ as it pertains to signal cannons mostly used to announce a ship coming into port, so I am mixing some metaphors here. The rest (I hope) speaks for itself. I wrote this @ my desk today, which is weird for me as it is high pressure but these just popped in there (ghostbusters reference).
music… no correlation, I just was listening to this today so… 2 versions of the same folk song adaptation, some great singers as well…
Swiss and German are pretty close in a lingual speaking sense, very different people though (except in the small Austrian towns from my experience at least). Of course Eluviete had my fave singer (Anna Murphy) so I posted a live version there so you can see how friggin amazing she is in the real.
