Appel 01:52
Appelle-moi vers le sud Le vent du nord va gêler moi Je vole avec les yeux glacés Pour aller voir les violettes Appelle-moi vers le sud Envole-moi vers le sud Je suis la girouette Pour rentrer dans le sud Survolant la giboulée Le vent après lequel je soupire Appelle-moi vers le sud Appelle-moi vers le sud Accueillie par le vent d’autan Et un orage qui n’eut jamais pleuré Autant de lourdes larmes pour s’y baiger Appelle-moi vers le sud

Lock up this old house We have grown too heavy And soon the ivy Makes the walls unsteady The walls will tumble Cracks in the windows Decomposing The birds are moving in All of the big roads Are split down the middle Sunk in the water Of every river Seas of plastic Floating plasters In every corner Are our disasters Lime leaf kisses A wild uniform The green of unstopping The blueness of nothing Secret freedom Relentless growing Concrete pavements With small shoots showing

Bright Field 04:32
I have seen the sun break through to illuminate a small field for a while, and gone my way and forgotten it. But that was the pearl of great price, the one field that had treasure in it. I realise now that I must give all that I have to possess it. Life is not hurrying on to a receding future, nor hankering after an imagined past. It is the turning aside like Moses to the miracle of the lit bush, to a brightness that seemed as transitory as your youth once, but is the eternity that awaits you Poem by R. S. Thomas

Take me to the edge of the field Where the snow is settling Walk me down the frosty path Where we have often walked My saddle’s sore my bridle’s bent My blinkers are cracked and broken Take me to the edge of the field Where I will see the ocean Take me to the edge of the field Through the open window Walk me down the corridors Where we have often talked My legs are tired of lying down My eyes have not forgotten Take me to the edge of the field Where I will see the ocean Take me to the edge of the sea Between sand and water Walk with me into the waves Hopping over them like children Take me to the edge of the sea Between sand and water Walk with me into the waves But don’t follow after
