lyrics

Oh June
How do you do?
I run across the meadow
With stars in my pockets
Oh June
What to do?
I can’t contain
All this firelight and milkweed and roses

Oh June
You left me standing by the old fence.
Wildflowers blooming in cement
And yesterday’s compost pile
How to
Explain to my lover?
I have become a bird
That soars over water

Oh June
What about you?
Did you break hearts
When you sailed off apart from the winter?
How true!
You don’t have to tell me twice:
This life is for living
And living can be so nice.
