lyrics

At Nelson's Ledge
I'm looking over that chasmic edge.
Autumn sunset gathers the darkness
Within.
A rustle below
I offer a stone (I say 'hello').
From nowhere, my greeting comes echoing
Home.

I feel the dusk creep in
And I feel alone again.
Nothing's been lost or won.
Nothing's been said or done.
Oh, leave me unsung.

I stand within,
A supplicant bending to the light let in.
Shining whitely–washes the granite like
Bone.
And overhead
In a fissure of sky I stand instead.
Eyes casting blank in the dark where
I've been.

Silence of dusk intones
And I am again alone.
Nothing's been lost or won.
Nothing's been said or done.
Oh, leave me unsung.
