Do Not Rush the Dawn

Something’s been asleep in me
like filtered sun on the river rocks,
like quiet breeze, almost still leaves
or the faint hint of wild pasque.
Oh, something’s been asleep in me.
What it is, I do not ask,
but I let it sleep, let it dream oh, let it dream…
Do not rush the dawn.

Something is at last at rest
like tattered kites on the back-porch shelves
like arguments worn down to tears,
empty pulpits… broken bells…
Something is at last at rest
birds have fallen silent now
beneath their wings no hunger sings…
no hunger sings…
Do not rush the dawn.

And I will close these eyes
still my fear
let my heart grow wise
love draws near…
midnight makes the perfect mirror
of this muddy and troubled pond,
so do not rush the dawn,
do not rush the dawn,
do not rush the dawn,
do not rush the dawn.

Something’s been asleep in me
like filtered sun on the river rocks,
but I let it sleep, let it dream
oh, let it dream…
Do not rush the dawn.

And I will close these eyes
still my fear
let my heart grow wise
love draws near…
midnight makes the perfect mirror
of this muddy and troubled pond, 
so, do not rush the dawn.

And I will close these eyes
still my fear
let my heart grow wise
love draws near…
midnight makes the perfect mirror
of this muddy and troubled pond,
so, do not rush the dawn,
do not rush the dawn,
do not rush the dawn,
do not rush the dawn.
