Janet Robbins - Song of the Gypsy Tree


As in Winter

Oooh as in winter

When night is long

So happy in my solitude and song

Like fishing diamonds

From a frozen pond

I may never leave

This house in the meadow

‘Neath the starred soot sky

Could be my home forever—but no

Will never be

Was not meant to be

 

Wind through the pine tree limbs

It’s a song—never the same, I love
again and again

It will carry me over the fields sheltered in snow’s embrace

In this field a fire

I will light then blow

Chase the embers laughing

Through melting snow

 

Do you see me dancing

Do you see, do you see, do you see me dance

Do you see me now

Well it’s me I’m dancing

Wanna see, wanna see, wanna see me dance

In the fire’s glow

Look at me dancing

Can you see, can you see, can you see me dance

 

Can you see me now

When you see me dancing

If you see, if you see, if you see me dance

Miss me as in winter, then go

 

Dance

At the edge of the wood

Round of flames

Dance the flames

Melting snow At the edge of the wood

Each falling crystal

         Face     A clear Memory

Face Of you

Face of you

Of you                         Do you see

Flecks of light signal light

from the edge of the wood

Infinite reflection

You move into the crowd

         Under the moon

You look translucent

I might not know you were there

except for the shadow around you

           At the edge of the wood

 

Dance

The flames

Melting

Light signals at the edge of the wood

So clear

       Take shape           Each falling crystal

waiting

an Echo       the memory

for someone

the original

echo                   so clear so bright

under the moon the edge of the wood     takes shape

but you stepped out into the crowd

you moved through the crowd

and no one seemed to see you

                           as if you were floating

you looked translucent

                             take shape

I might not know you were there except
for the shadow around you

               I stood             watching

Each falling crystal

                       Echo           So clear

               You looked around

The flame, dance of flames

Melting

         As if you were waiting

I see you standing

At the edge

Transparent as if you really don’t…

Waiting

I might not know you were there except for the shadow around you

For someone             You look                                                          translucent

Except for the shadow around you

You move through the crowd as if you                        were floating

Ashen snow at your feet

as if you were floating
Like a ghost in winter

 


 

November

Oh the whispered plea

As the moon appeared

Shadows from falling leaves

November here

Clouds like balloons

And the blade goes in

Love has a sword

‘Round and round you wrestle

Let it go

And let him drift

Like balloons on November wind

 


 

Sparks

Oceans and seas expanding

Forests reduced to soot

Who are we

Rivers of floating refuse

Rushing to feed the sea

Who are we

lover and muse, heaven’s waiting

What will we do

lover and muse heaven waits

   we…

 

Orbit around the sun in a romance

Gravity pulls, sparks shoot between us

Breathe

   heaven and earth beloved so real

Breathe

   heaven and earth beloved so real

Let the memories flow

Remember paradise

So real

   yes this is our

This is our paradise

 

Rise up

Rise

Paradise

Rise up

Paradise

Rise

Rise

Paradise

On the flame of love this could be ours

 

Stars light the sky some of us pray to

Some hail the light so we continue

Inhale the evening air

Shores are lined with bodies from our poisoned tides

Lying there lifeless, no refuge

Some say it’s easy

some say

Not so easy

 

Gravity pulls, sparks shoot between us

Gravity pulls, sparks shoot

Gravity pulls, between us

Gravity pulls, sparks shoot,

Breathe

 

Orbiting ‘round the sun in a romance

Gravity pulls, sparks shoot between us

Breathe

Welcome to paradise

Round, around we spin

Our balance teetering

I can almost feel us falling through space

So in case we go, let me say that

Sometimes I kneel down

For the amber red of sunset’s glow

And the heartbeat in the ground below

Ooh let it come tonight

Let it come tonight

Sparks shooting

Spark’s light

Will we remember paradise

As the gift to live and love on this, heaven’s land

To the earth we’d return complete

And I’m in awe and thankful

 


 

Song of The Gypsy Tree

Ahh, Tsigan

Mmmm night is well behind us

You can see as I can

Times already past

And those to come

You can lean where I stand

Feel the world as I can

You can see life

Witness life as I

Although you think I’m different

You can see as I can

 

Lie beneath my arms

Watch the falling leaves in twilight

Hear like a child and breathe as the wind

Calling, say I can believe

I am willing

As you drift out of time

Summon your innocent plea to meet us

We who have not forgotten

Pretend you are me

And see as we see

 

“Beloved, gaze in thine own heart,

The holy tree is blooming there.”

— W. B. Yeats

 


 

Egypt

The sun is up and the girl is waking

Wipe the sleep from your eyes

It’s a beautiful day

“Is it me in the dream that I remember?”

Wonders little girl,

“Who am I today?”

 

She talks to the moon at night

And in the morning, radios Mars

so many of her, she’s everywhere now

She’s looking down

She’s a morning star

 

From the east the winds, they blow

They blow with dreams that rise

From east of Egypt

As the lion dreams, winds blow

And the dreams they sail across

Sail across to me

Sailing on the sea

Rising from the lion’s heart

Rising up through me

 

We make up songs about Tesla’s ray gun

Building rocket ships for frogs in astronaut suits

She makes a face then falls down laughing

Can’t believe the funny way the animals play

They jump to the rhythm of her song and dance

As we telephone stars
is somebody out there, is someone listening

Forever friends, promise

Cross your heart

 

From the east the winds, they blow…

 

Though winds may blow

And sands of time may beat
against me now

this is what I hear her saying

They never will erase my heart

 

where the music is

And the music and number of
soul align

   where the music is

Where the music is, so the
numbers of soul align

 

There’s a light that burns the fading night to brilliant sunrise

There is a shroud of night that births from her depths, desire

If the weight of a fearful choice,
or deft disguise leaves me heavy

Light like a diamond shines and weightless with the sea I float

So many ways to hear the wind

And to sail this dream

But the heart like a diamond
shines through the end.

and the music and number of
soul align

 


 

Slowly

Once you believe, you can be sure of me

Taken for granted

often you

Drift from your core

I offer you

Grace from the fall and loss of dignity

Look­see who’s standing

As you come to me slowly

 

I can be seen reflected in shadows and half-light

poised and tattered

A break from the spell

I offer you

Sight that compels you

often to

Walk as the fool who
trusts implicitly

Look­see who’s standing

As you come to me slowly

 

Soaring unending flight

Melodies and rhyme

Messengers in time

Sometimes in the
notes capture

For your world

Flash of eternal light

Looking in your eyes

Spark of a million stars

Often in your face captured

As you come to me slowly

 

Hmmm, gotcha’ some static on the line

Hey, say some static is
on the line

‘cross the fields where the gods, they lay wasted

In this world of pipe dreams

So many shiny objects fade

The Nectar we could
be drinking

But how many taste

 

There’s a reason I wake;

For the messages of the few I wait

 

Soaring unending flight

Melodies and rhyme

Messengers in time

Sometimes in the
notes capture

For your world

Flash of eternal light

Looking in your eyes

Spark of a million
stars

Often in your face
captured

As you come to me
slowly

 


 

The Meaning

Only in the world of apocalypse

Only in the world of apocalypse

Only in the,

In the…

 

Is it mystery

Or travesty

From the ancient tree crawling on your belly

Without any arms and legs

Did you fall

Or were you pushed

From the grace of ages older
and wiser

Teach me the truest meaning
mother, now

 

Only in the world of apocalypse

 

Through the leaves

And to the fruit

Runs the blood of life and love
and laughter

Saturday’s blessing from
Sunday’s master

Calling on love light and truth

May it be known love’s
highest treason

Tell me the holiest reason
mother, now

 

Only in the world of apocalypse

 


 

Evermore

As I sleep

Do you watch as I wander

   always the friend I need

   are you here beside me

In my dreams

Will you be there to guide me

show me the way home

When we meet faithful guardian please,

please

Take me home

Follow every step I take

Follow every step I take, for me

 

Side by side

At the gate, I remember

   now as a memory

   is this how I came to be

Darkness spins, life begins but I falter

   follow me faithfully

We could look into each and see

   forevermore

Evermore

   Follow every step I take, for me

   Follow every step then wait for me
