lyrics

the ash of dawn
won't burn too long and oh
wind she whispers secrets through the birch grove
dust of silver covers all the we know
i will follow your tracks home
i will follow your tracks through the snow

the highway lines
and sidewalk cracks below
windows into worlds
we no longer go
theres a reason why you see it all
but i can't be the one
to make your world slow
i have never been one to follow

-

snowflakes fell to kiss the ground
headed north over great divide,
treetops held snow so rich and heavy
their bows bent graciously forth
inviting wanderers into the joyous night

an amber light in the distance beckoning,
echoes of merriment, clinking of cups
a night to behold

dancing barefoot, the snow was warm to rambunctious rum
his eyes had the spark
she was raven haired with crimson cap
tales unravelled of the day's tracks
and dusk met new day, midnight of a new year
a rocking chair watchman, symphony of snores
my brother, just a fleck in my father’s eye
as sparks fell to ember bodies danced their quiet music

a winter wedding,
a crimson dress
the springs birthed golden children
wrapped in fleece and stuffed in sacks
to chase tracks and heavy trees, again

sometimes I walk parka clad and wordless
into the quiet of night
follow tracks of coyote
the world is dreaming,
dust of silver draws me into moonlit sanctity
the wind may sing through dappled birch
but no words are uttered, none are needed.
I look up to cerulean tops of
the mountains that raised me
for where would I be
without them
