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 the 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

Lyrics ©2007 Richard Schletty. Music ©2007 Andreas van Haren

Excellent and playful piano composition stands on its own very nicely. It's that much more of an accomplishment that your vocals and lyrics blend so well - I find the style unusual but so involving and inspiring. I knew you were good with words, and the lyrics are wonderful in their soulful admiration, but I was especially surprised with your vocal performance. Warm, full and full of life energy. Well done.

I wanna take you'all higher.
Thanks, Parichayaka. Good of you to drop by and express your thoughts on this. As always, I'm shooting at clay pigeons in a gray sky.
