The dance of the piper
shadows of puppet moon
shattered by the sun
As I walk a road, hurrying along

The keeper of the city moor
Takes his skeletal keys hung
Opens the screeching door
Muttering ancient tongue

The smiles of the jesters
And the resonant quiet tune
The Choir quietly sings
Unfurled a funeral song

With a strange deep sound
The grinding cog wheels bore
Rusted chains holding bound
As the crowds call for more

A light grey rain falls
As it softly stirilingly sings
To bequile worldly schemes
An ancient garden it seems

The dance of the piper
Shadows of puppet moon
Shattered by the sun
As I walk a road, hurrying along

A veiled lady smiles to deem
As strings hauntly wiles
I cannot imagine dreams
To all that I see or seem

The face of a fires witch
A cauldron to which
I quench to satisfy my deep thirst
O'er sit and watch a while

Adrift in my thoughts
My heart slowly reveals
As the jester called out louder
The secret plain to see


Outside the bleak dark night

By the light of a horned moon
The shadows cross the floor
As the shrill cries call for more

The night sinks more, I implore
The celestial light for thee
I stand, amid the roar
Of a ravaged tormented shore

Alvin Lee.....After Signing With Columbia Records

"Looking pretty rosy right now
It’s been a good trip.......
Ahh musically we’re heading where we’ve been heading
All along, it’s just been one long search
To find what’s right
We do what ever we feel  like doing
At the time we do it
We never plan anything
We never say we’re going to achive  anything this year
Just hope things will go well
You know, we just follow musical integrity

We try and be artists
In a world which… where …Artist have a difficult time to live
To get art through in a commercial world
Is difficult…..but I believe it can be done…."

Wrap me in a shroud

Tell me something

So I can recall what I was"

"A Winter Walk"

Dec. 28, 2008

 

 

**************************************************************************************************************

 

 


 

I’ll forever know
the wind so bold
Witnessed the suffering

As calmness took hold

The faces in the crowd
They long to be….
To their homes
A distant memory

The fields So Dire
Through the mountains
My heart soars…
Above the din and fire..

The hurt so  deep
The sun slowly gone down
No longer held bound   
To the deep darkest keep

The moon riding high…
Keeping me solace
Shine on me….
Through the Deep cold night

 

I long to be
In your arms
Someday, to return to…
The door and the key

At last…no more harm
I look and see
All before me
In silence and calm


Don’t despair and desert me….
My gaze to the stars
And mind in the highlands
As it always will be

I cannot sit to dwell
So many turns,
As many yet not done…
Perhaps all gone to hell

Cannot I just not do…..
To surrender….surrender
For all men has to die….
Let me bid you
 farewell…….
