Quiet Song

Call your heart open for want of a better word
It's seen 'bout enough now to deem it needs more

you're not passing the basket nor asking for coin
or answering an invitation
waiting for a cause to join

You hid your opinion like a candle held up to the sun
you practised retelling the tales the others had spun
of fate and of fable how we've now become
yearning for some inspiration
you're waiting for your turn to come

down pour the minutes
up builds the well
i'll try to hide it
but you can tell

the silence that followed the whisper you sent through the leaves
spoke of a treasure both buried and never retrieved

the moment both broken by the window and day
weighing up the situation
a different way


from The Window and Day, released September 18, 2014
