Bells of Serene

from "Floating Upstream: Early Works of J S Kingfisher"

Lyrics

Colors on my dreaming place changing hue
Sun that hugs the farm and face
to window through the dew
Moon has baked her morning
and weaving ‘round my hair
Comes the sound of laughter wafting up the stair

Near a hallowed place I know rivers flow
Standing under emptiness
where rippling reeds can grow
Peace can drift right through me
and aching now to fly
Waking wings and birds ignite the sky

Sliver-silver-crystal-sprig-white desire
Over fields of summer
ring the bells of Saint Serene
Are you sleeping? Are you sleeping? Are you sleeping?

Cussing through a stoplight race I can’t lose
Chatter on a desperate face
and greasy daily news
Hide me and deny you
in hazy noonday light
Anger lust and loving to be right

Thicken-swallow-brown grey nut-dust and fire
Through the towns of winter
ring the bells of Saint Serene
Are you sleeping? Are you sleeping?
Are you sleeping? Are you sleeping?
