Sparrow's Song

Measure all your worldly losses
Commune wine and rosemary crosses
Cast all your flesh desires
Into the field of controlled fires
Turn your face from passing seasons
That mark the path with rhymes and reasons
From realm to realm we die in duty
And rise as breath does exhale beauty

Strangers from a far-off land
Know with glances, understand
Not in language cold and brittle
But as time erases little by little
Marks and scars and flagrant errors
Doubts and fears and strung-out terrors
That have no place in pale white love
And rise below, whats above

The hazel stars that light Cheyenne
The mountains still untouched by man
The setting sun on desert wings
The sparrow at the midnight sings
That pain aspires to bring harm
And though your walking arm in arm
With the shadow of your hearts companion
These chains hold no dominion
On gentle skies everlasting
Or waves of joy that know no chastening


from A Tyrant's Plea, released February 28, 2011
