wolf willow

by Kirby Criddle



from the upcoming album RITUALS


you came from a land of snow and ice
of wheat and wonder, prairie skies
barren land heart attack hold time

out of the earth, blistering shoots
fumbling branches, singing roots
strong hands homeland be mine

and our bodies harvested for firewood
i guess that we were only born to burn

you grew so fast, stretched so tall
could you retain what it meant to feel small
deliverance inconsequence we tried

and finally the winter won
the seasons changed before we could run
oh silence stillness knows no sides


released April 28, 2014
