Seneca

  • Oh chariot of insect
    Oh crown of wind
    Two royal leopards run with him
    On a golden lead of tapered vine
    Oh the blood sky, oh the blood sky
    Vine of a god running wild
    Oh golden seed who made the winged child

    Run, run my little one
    Run out to sea
    Run, run my little one
    What do you seek?

    The canvas is high
    The scheme of a life
    Written in the wind
    The pen, the knife
    Run my little one
    Breathe a hymn
    Breathe my little one
    A hymn to him
    To him

    The master is calling, calling
    The canvas is high
    The scheme of a life
    Written in the wind
    The pen, the knife

    Run, run out to sea
    Run my little one
    What do you seek?

    If you were his eyes
    If you were his dreams
    The whole of the sky could not contain you
    So run, run, run out to sea
    Run my little one
    Breathe a hymn for him
    For thee Writer/s: LEONARD J KAYE, PATTI SMITH
