Murmurs of starlight unspoken
drift away.
Memories of river trails unbroken—
may I stay
beside your fire for a time?
Hold you in my arms as we watch the river go by,
remembering a place when you were mine.
So fine.

Dreams of golden strangers,
come inside.
Visions like shadows of unknown danger—
love me kind.
Deep within your house of glass,
may we forever forget the pain of the past,
as the whirlwind of freedom chains you within my grasp,
my lass.

My love, return to your harbor.
And lay down your anchor
because I am marooned here
beside these waters,
until you, lovely, should come back around
and lift me up off of this lonesome ground.

Flowers break through the barren earth—
a brand new day.
Butterflies float like shadows of sunshine—
a whole new way:
to catch these darts of honeyed wine;
to dance and sing beneath the silver moonshine;
to look at her and to see her smile.
So fine.

And I'll tell it, and think it, and speak it, and breathe it;
and reflect from the mountain so all souls can see it;
and I'll stand on the ocean until I start sinking,
but I'll know my song well before I start singing.
-Bob Dylan
