lyrics

FIRST CROSSING

The lake glimpsed through a creaking bridge
Underfoot between the sleepers.
Each glinting gap a swallowed gasp,
Each stuttered step sets hearts clenching.
Threadwalking over an empty drop,
Where the wind would wash us in......
Each sun a star, each lake a mirror
Refracting blinking constellations.

The slower drop beneath the lights below
Sets the child's mind turning.
With breath held high, back to the wall:
Oncoming train - I'm shuddering.
On tensile steel, on bright thin air
Away from me, away to sea, away from Lough Atalia.
