lyrics

William Blake's Cathedral

Could swear I saw you in the Citadel
When the mist rose up from those ramparts & fields,
I was moving in the new morning all around the well,
I was dancin’ to be healed.

Carried upon the waves of Mystery,
No longer barking down the blind alleys of opinion,
Hailing those heroes of unspoken histories –
The king’s own noble, stalwart minions.

Barefoot in William Blake’s Cathedral –
Touch my forehead, open up these skies!
Barefoot in William Blake’s Cathedral –
I see the light in your eyes…

You manifested before me in the Spring,
Whisperin’ in the deep green glen,
My mind on fire & my eyes so blind
And you so full of Wonderin’!

On those silver trumpets, how the sunlight gleamed!
Into your service I was sent.
Surrendered & whirlin’ with my gaze upraised
In the refuge of Walt Whitman’s tent!

Take away this “I Am” from between you & me,
Movin’ ‘neath the firmament as in a trance.
Can I believe my eyes, what they so humbly see?
As the petals of the roses fall from your hair & from the palms of your hands!
