Track Name: Aporia
The tide is high the clouds are low
The sun makes lakes of light below
Song sparrow sips the sighing sea
From spiral shells upon the beach
In time the ocean fills with rain
Out here the ice is all aflame
The bitten ends are signal clear
Of other fellows lying near
Track Name: Incantation
Bough in emerald
The blue brook and mountain sheer
Subtle path of the sable and roebuck deer
Flowered meadow in yellow
The wren calling clear

Darkness settles
The tree frog and owl cheer
Magic tone of the gloaming inspires your ear
Whispering willow and will-o-wisp
Drawing you near

River running
A rune sung with cunning care
May the elegant tongue of a poet share
Words unruly for beauty
An animate prayer

Our native home
A bygone poem
Aching alone
Far flung memory

Sink down
The crow-wing crown
Lives low
And bids the throes of
Wild alchemy

Bring light
To old insight
Sing through the hold of
Frightful machinery
Track Name: The River Boyne
Out fishing on the River Boyne
Words surface and a rhythm joins
In the stream of poem

Come laddy-o and train your mind
'Til bravery and love do rhyme
Will you cast your line?

These purling waters
Run richer than ever before
Your sons and daughters
Are sending some silver ashore

Flame flicker at the fireside
Long shadow where the answers hide
I in you confide

If all knowing is the goal of men
This osier knows a sage's friend
Will you taste it then?

These purling waters
Run richer than ever before
Your sons and daughters
Are sending some silver ashore

Fair hair upon a redwood frame
Hard-heeled against the call of fame
Will you say your name?

Out gazing at the starry skies
Pale whip-poor-will is on the rise
How sweet she flies

These purling waters
Run richer than ever before
Your sons and daughters
Are sending some silver ashore

The rook is cawing
The music of what is in store
Her sons and daughters
Say living is its own reward
