DRESS VII

TO YOUR WINDOW

When the night has fallen I will come

On the shortest day with sunlight

And when the stars are hidden I will bring you light

Sewn into a dark blue blanket

 

I’ll hang above, I’ll hang above

 

If you are lonely, I’ll send a magpie

To carol outside of your window

If you are tired, I’ll send the wind your way

To make wings of your jacket

 

Like the birds above, like birds above

 

Each day I will come

Come rain or shine to your side

Each day I will come

I will come

 

With pencils, coins and cigarettes and moonshine

With sticks and mud and leaves and thorns from roses

To your window I will come

 

With small gifts to your window, I will come

 

Come rain or shine to your side I will come

 

With small gifts

 

Flown from far around to your window I will come

With small gifts to your window
