Heart With Wings

If magic tears would heal you

I made them yesterday

I trace your fingers on the inside

Of the mug you made

Place myself on the wheel

And become the clay

Look for you in flowers

Call upon my marrow

The Great Ones gone before

 

Put your wound to the Earth

Put your wound to the Earth and heal

 

The swallows dip and skim

The geese protect their young

I share my grief with the pond

By singing a song

A story of a mother teacher

Sister of the Moon

A heart with wings

Weaving soul and body

Like the Great Ones gone before

 

Put your wound to the Earth

Put your wound to the Earth and heal

 

Oh, to dance with you

Each adventure something new

Oh, to share with you

To be a guest in your home

Oh, to taste with you

A cup of your brew

Oh, to shape with you

A memory to hold

 

The breeze is warm

Then turns cold and fast

I know you tried to assure

And how elegant your were

It's not you I'm worried for

But me and who I'll be

Swim for you in waters

Reach for you in trees

The Great Ones gone before

 

Put your wound to the Earth

Put your wound to the Earth and heal
