Late Spring
Copyright George Papavgeris, Feb 2007
.
Seed is waiting in the field
Farmer waiting by the fire
Lonely in the barn the bridle
And the nests are waiting idle
For the new life to begin
Everywhere a dusty grey
And the geese are getting thin
Winter coat on every garden
And the hearts and nature harden
Waiting for the sign of spring

Swallow you were late in coming
Swallow you were late in coming
Eyes are reaching up to find you
Sailing through the bleak horizon
Trailing summer days behind you


Take a walk down on the beach
All the sand is washed away
Stolen by the seas of winter
In the sky, the sun a splinter
Frozen rocks beneath my feet
Washed up timber on the shore
Like a broken dream of old
Tired and weary from the waiting
Hope and promise now is baiting
As it lies there in defeat

Swallow you were late in coming
Swallow you were late in coming
Eyes are reaching up to find you
Sailing through the bleak horizon
Trailing summer days behind you


Few the people on the streets
Every pavement made of glass
Not a single face is smiling
And the need and hunger hiding
In the sheltered underpass
Wind is whistling in the park
Every bush another tune
All around the empty benches
Snow is melting and it drenches
Every memory of June

Swallow you were late in coming
Swallow you were late in coming
Eyes are reaching up to find you
Sailing through the bleak horizon
Trailing summer days behind you

Every promise of the summer
Every fantasy of winter
Searching for the silver lining
Hearts are rising from submission
As in hopeful premonition
Dawn of emeralds is shining

Swallow you were late in coming
Swallow you were late in coming
Eyes are reaching up to find you
Sailing through the bleak horizon
Trailing summer days behind you
