From the recording Secret Poems
The melody arrived with its lovely melancholic tuning, and then a few words.
(Secret Poem #5)
Gaze into a golden drop of time
Dreams and lives and accidental rhyme
Here a feather, there a seeded ball –
Amber holds them all.
Once I lived and breathed like you
Hope, the bird that flew.
Caught in motion for eternity, I’m
Trapped in a drop of time.
