The Magpie 04:43
3 and 4 and 5 counts the magpie counts her children in the sky 3 and 4 and 5 one jewel excites her way plate reverb and tap delay those higher frequencies decay counts the magpie woods and lakes and fields and sand summer heats this joyous land i asked the trees to speak to me they are awake and listening 1 and 2 and 3 the laughing gull awakens me a rusty hinge at the stroke of 3 1 and 2 and 3 the goddess of the laughing gulls lives in a red house on the hill through stained glass and spectacles she's watching me woods and lakes and fields and sand summer heats this joyous land i asked the trees to speak to me they are awake and listening

The sun is risen on my grief Sleepless night turns to burnished day On the road of no return Dancing by my feet Are fumiter and furrow-weeds, Burdocks, hemlock and cuckoo-flowers, All the idle weeds that grow Mad as the vexed sea Century in stately rows Every acre of the field Nature hold me in repose Thorns and roots and leaves Blessed secrets of the earth, Mediate in my distress! Close the eye of anguish now, All you idle weeds. Alack, it's I met even now Crowned with nettles and darnel Singing aloud to all and none And handfuls gathering Of fumiter and furrow-weeds, Burdocks, hemlock and cuckoo-flowers, All the idle weeds that grow Mad as the vexed sea Sister moon and brother sun, Starry heaven, river swift, Give me strength and will to know Why I still draw breath Blessed secrets of the earth, Mediate in my distress! Close the eye of anguish now, All you idle weeds.
