White Hart

Poem By Andy Wood

I sweat in the blazing sun
So as to keep cool,
That I may offer you shade.
Even though our love disappears as a mirage.

I sway with the wind of the storm
So as not to break,
That I may hold you in my arms, sheltered
As our love falls to the ground like an autumn leaf.

I shiver with the cold of the frost
So as to keep warm,
That I may surround you with heat
While our love dissolves like melting snowflakes.

One day you will remember me
And your love will try to burst forth
Like a new shoot in the spring,
But I will be gone like a white hart disturbed by hunters.

Dead Love

When love turns inside out
Because it is so vast
That the world cannot cope
It destroys you.

I Still Love You

I walk towards the fire and sing
Of summers gone and distant spring
Of lands of gold and places new.
I still love you.

Cattle

See the cities smother love
Hate is growing from above
Breeding plague, selling death
Counting every sacred breath

Unmarked Grave

It's not black and white
Like they say
No left and right
On the Royal Way

The Lovers

Join with me
In the dusky wood-land
Take my hand
Take my meaning
