Song To The Siren

Long afloat on shipless oceans
…I did all my best to smile
’Til your singing eyes and fingers
Drew me loving to your isle
And you sang
Sail to me, sail to me
Let me enfold you
Here I am, here I am, waiting to hold you

Did I dream you dreamed about me?
Were you hare when I was fox?
Now my foolish boat is leaning
Broken lovelorn on your rocks,
For you sing
Touch me not, touch me not,
Come back tomorrow
O my heart, O my heart shies from the sorrow

I am puzzled as the newborn child
I am riddled as the tide:
Should I stand amid the breakers?
Should I lie with Death my bride?
Hear me sing,
Swim to me, swim to me, let me enfold you
Here I am, here I am, waiting to hold you.


My favourite version of this song is here:
Song to the Siren ~ Cocteau Twins

You can also enjoy the equally beautiful original version here:

~ Written by Tim Buckley/Larry Beckett
Tim Buckley Music ASCAP
19th Opus Music o/b/o Third Story Music, Inc. BMI
Released 1970 Straight/Warner Records – “Starsailor”

I think the best way to describe my own evolving creative journey is that of Visual Storyteller ~ One who loves to collect and weave images and words together to convey timeless stories.

My intention is that these creations draw you into their depths and evoke a sense of mystery and wonder… inviting you to explore your own inner worlds and stories.

I would love you to come and visit my world here…
