...and what was before

Ah, I hear the pipe
Do you hear it too?
The Curlew bright
a shining bird in concert
with the song of the moors.

Oh but to hear the singing
just once, once more, my love.
To see the seventh wave, the gull
and the northern seal
watch til the deeps thunder

To feel the running, just this once
and the stag in antlered rutting roaring
To see the silvered strings
and gold leafed dresses
in the blessed harp of the shivered trees.

Getting mushroom gathered while ye may
The stacks of sweet, oh so sweet yellow
The vixen’s yip for precious young
and a headress of grass that you will wear
life in a rayed red sunset

The best fish leaping
The swans necking the weed lake
The talon clutch in a flying shadow
the blue of the hare on the mountain snow
and the world that was before

...and what was before
