Day 25: 365 “Circle Songs”

Someone Skyped me tonight and I found myself subconsciously singing and elaborating on the ringtone for hours, which happens more than you might think!  Finally I’m “getting it out of my head” at least a little bit with this Skype circle song…

Day 24: 365 “Circle Songs”

Another attempt at using a Sylvia Plath poem for lyrics, as I really liked the last one (Circle 22.)  This one has a bit of an anthem feel.  I don’t feel it works as well, but it’s in a Major key, and I never like those as well…

Frog Autumn

Summer grows old, cold-blooded mother,

The insects are scant, skinny.

In these palustral homes we only

Croak and wither

 

Mornings dissipate in somnolence.

The sun brightens tardily

Among the pithless reeds.  Flies fail us,

The fen sickens.

 

Frost drops even the spider.  Clearly

The genius of plenitude

Houses himself elsewhere.  Our folk thin

Lamentably.

Circle 24
