Sandcastle

===========================================

SANDCASTLE 23 March 1974 (1981, 2017) T. E. Gray

===========================================


(Recording has slightly older lyrics; A newer version will be forthcoming!)

Sandcastle on, some secret shoreline… waiting.

Distant footprints, pray, come near.


Wind chiseled walls, sun faded… still gazing

upon the waves of lonely tears.


Mind-mansions drift thru solitude… hiding

hopes of love, so slow to appear.


Flickering shadows in rooms still… glowing.

Mirror of self from some other year.


Seabird unbounded, castle spirit… soaring

above, beyond --to some future, freer.


Sandcastle on, some secret shoreline… waiting.

Distant footprints, pray, come near...


Shadows and hopes from some other year.

Distant footprints, pray, come here.
