the dawning days

A wall of sound with flutes and strings
Rising on a wave of voices
Surrounded by your humble faith
Morning’s there to wake us in time, rain and sky

The world is breathing, living
But turning in its rage

When summer returns to its warm green fields
Everything slows
The sun fading, pastel in the breeze
Everything slows

The swallow swooping, migrating home
Everything slows…

Gems from my vinyl archive. Enjoy!

“Meanwhile,” said Mr Tumnus, “it is winter in Narnia, and has been for ever so long, and we shall both catch cold if we stand here talking in the snow. Daughter of Eve from the far land of Spare Oom where eternal summer reigns around the bright city of War Drobe, how would it be if you came and had tea with me?”  (C.S. Lewis, The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe)
