Geography

Album: A Dark Murmuration of Words (2020)
  • Be my view looking back
    Red earth deep, red-tailed black
    First landscapes and loves
    Clear blue skies above
    Calling me down that gravel track

    Eucalypts after rain
    Remind me who I'm again
    On petrichor nights, my memories alight
    We're more than we ever could explain

    Tidal questions at my feet
    Home is where the heart lines meet
    Not in distance of the seas
    Nor geography

    Say hello to the spring
    What will this time you bring?
    An old self to shed? A new mouth to be fed?
    Write me an answer I can sing

    Tidal questions at my feet
    Home is where the heart lines meet
    Not in distance of the seas
    Nor geography

    Down every dune of your shoreline
    I move with the migratory birds
    Me and my shadows in a flight path rhyme
    A dark murmuration of words Writer/s: EMILY BARKER, GRAHAM KEITH GOULDMAN
    Publisher: DOMINO PUBLISHING COMPANY
