Björk “Hidden Place”

 

 

 

 

to the river
from afar
catching fireflies in a jar
twinkle twinkle little star
i know precisely what you are
i dream concisely
when invited
to delight thee
open palmed
to the river
from afar
politely charmed

 

here thou art fine
thine hallmarked heart
of fine art and divine
i hear the call
of mystifying splendour
in the vine
in sweep so steeped of venture
i feel betterment to cry
each tear
the milk and honey
running gently down my spine
to testify the sweetened nectar of define

 

it is funny how the river runs
more freely in thy wake
encouraging each feeling
of fragility misplaced
revealing the naïveté one needs to bleed in grace
i dream consisely
when invited to relieve the mighty chains
ordained to bind me
to delusion of misfaith

 

in light of thee
they fall away
the river runs
to call thy name
the tall grass sways
to serenade
the rising tide
of all thine aid
invited to delight thee
open palmed
to the river
from afar
politely charmed
