Anticipation

Circle of Life ~ Philip Brent

Circle of Life ~ Philip Brent

I sing the tune without notes
Life, air, water, love and hate
Urgent laughter, birds and boats
Indrawn breath which all await
Star birth and truth glowing
Shadows contrast, seeds scatter
Wafting aloft; a river flowing
Small feet, rain go pitter-patter
Glorious crescendo in minor key
Within, without, all together

Alone, contained, a stormy sea
Clement like a stone or feather
Racing, dancing, quacking, barking
Fading, bursting across the skies
As serious as death or larking
Triumphs, losses, all the tries
Repeated in infinite variation
Our song of universal being
Composed in constant expectation
To anticipate our seeing
