Inland Sea

Inland Sea; I took this melody of a piano sonata I just finished, the lyrics are written by Richard Schletty. After recording the piano part here in my home in Sweden, I mailed it to Richard in the far USA where he added his voice to it. And here is the result, isn't internet beautiful!

Inland Sea

Waves traverse an inland sea
Songbird flies from Zuider Zee
Lifted by a prayerful poem
Journeys to a northern home

On a windy, snow-capped knoll
Harshest winter chills its soul
Soon a maiden finds it resting
Breathes upon its frozen cresting
Breathes on it, warms its soul

Polymnia tends the sparrow
Scatters seed upon the barrow
Raises deep-soul energies
High above adversities

Bird, revived, with sweetest trill
Brings back music to my sill
Gathers wool to warm new hearts
Sore in need of finest arts
Gathers wool, warms new hearts

Soaring, sweeping, winged chance
Come and spark a new romance
Paint the skies with threads of gold
Weave your magic
Weave your magic in the cold

Great coupling of couplets
I greatly enjoyed your stuff when you first arrived... very nice to see you and Richard team up. This is quite fun! Your piano piece here does feel like a wind-tossed wayward sparrow, weaving through adversity to find a sweet place to rest and be loved...

And Richard, you are singing about birds, right? You're not being metaphorical are you? (smirk) I liked your singing... you were singing as precisely as Andreas was playing... quite a striking effect, nice inter-weaving of musical motifs.

very lovely and loving melody, beautifully composed and played so cleanly and purely, amazing. one almost stops breathing not to disturb and scare that little sparrow drak mentioned above, from looking for a clam shelter to rest. rich, i have to say this is in my opinions one of the most beautiful singings of yours. it is simply wonderful, it fits this kind of music so wonderfully.... and "warm its SOUL" and "warm new HERATS" are probably the most beautiful male sounds (notes, tones) I have EVER heard. simply stunning. straight download :)
