    This whole song, basically, but this is always my favorite part:

    Kindness prevails!
    Ties and rails, ties and rails fall into line bearing kindness
    Where will you go, if not here?
    What will you say when you write to us?

    This is a world of terrible hardship everywhere
    And I search for words to set you at ease
    But there, in the looking-glass, a kite is soaring
    Stilling my warring heart and my trembling knees

    Anyhow - I sat by your side, by the water
    You taught me the names of the stars overhead that I wrote down in my ledger
    Though all that I knew of the rote universe were those Pleiades loosed in December
    I promised you I'd set them to verse so I'd always remember

    That the meteorite is the source of the light
    And the meteor's just what we see
    And the meteoroid is a stone that's devoid of the fire that propelled it to thee

    And the meteorite's just what causes the light
    And the meteor's how it's perceived
    And the meteoroid's a bone thrown from the void that lies quiet in offering to thee
    Because I was just outside observering a nebula and the Pleiades through binoculars and I saw a meteor.
    Maybe for once, someone will call me "Sir" without adding, "You're making a scene."

    There's a man
    who only will speak in code,
    backing slowly, slowly down the road.
    May he master everything
    that such men may know
    about loving, and then letting go.

    Go Long has suddenly become the theme song to my life. I'm feeling it hard these days. It says everything I can't.
    I don't understand the question, and I won't respond to it.

    Be at peace, baby, and be gone.
    Be at peace, baby, and be gone."

    I forgot about this thread!

    Lately for me its been:

    Recall the word you gave
    To count your way across the depths of this arid world
    Where you will yoke the waves that lay a bed of shining pearls

    I dream it every night:
    The ringing of the pail, the motes of sand dislodged, the shucking, quick and bright:
    The twinned and cast off shells reveal a single heart of white
