Sister Song

In Hilly Fields, in shadeless grass
Rolled up beneath the winter sun
I slumber sleepless like the fox
Watch the weeks and months go by

I lie among the leafless trees
And while it still inclines to rain
Until July I’ll close my eyes
Dream of Sunday spent with you

My sister says a prayer for me
It comes a-flying over the sea
The clouds are grey and white and blue
Drifting, sailing, with some sunlight sifting through
