Follow the Heron Lyrics

The song Follow the Heron is performed by Karine Polwart in the album named Scribbled in Chalk in the year 2006 .

Send Follow the Heron Ringtone to your Cell

The back of the winter is broken
And light lingers long by the door
And the seeds of the summer have spoken
In gowans that bloom on the shore

By night and day we'll sport and we'll play
And delight as the dawn dances over the bay
Sleep blows the breath of the morning away
And we follow the heron home

In darkness we cradled our sorrow
And stoked all our fires with fear
Now these bones that lie empty and hollow
Are ready for gladness to cheer


So long may you sing of the salmon
And the snow scented sounds of your home
While the north wind delivers its sermon
Of ice and salt water and stone


Send Follow the Heron Ringtone to your Cell
