Track Name: An English Breeze
Up with the sun, the breeze arose,
Across the talking corn she goes,
And smooth she rustles far and wide
Through all the voiceful countryside.

Through all the land her tale she tells;
She spins, she tosses, she compels
The kites, the clouds, the windmill sails
And all the trees in all the dales.
Track Name: Falling Through The Sunlight
This afternoon was the colour of water
falling through sunlight;
The trees
glittered with the tumbling of leaves;
The sidewalks shone
like alleys of dropped maple leaves,
And the houses
ran along them laughing out of square, open windows.
Track Name: Steps Of Passing Ghosts
Listen. .
With faint dry sound,
Like steps of passing ghosts,
The leaves, frost-crisp'd, break from the trees
And fall.

If it
Were lighter touch
Than petal of flower resting
On grass, oh still too heavy it were,
Too heavy

Just now,
Out of the strange
Still dusk ... as strange, as still...
A white moth flew.
Track Name: Flint
An emerald is as green as grass;
A ruby red as blood;
A sapphire shines as blue as heaven;
A flint lies in the mud.

A diamond is a brilliant stone,
To catch the world's desire;
An opal holds a fiery spark;
But a flint holds fire.
Track Name: Beech Tree
You are like the stem
Of a young beech-tree,
Straight and swaying,
Breaking out in golden leaves.

Your walk is like the blowing of a beech-tree
On a hill.
Your voice is like leaves
Softly struck upon by a South wind.

Your shadow is no shadow, but a scattered sunshine;
And at night you pull the sky down to you
And hood yourself in stars.
