‘While I Await The Dawn’

She rides into the kitchen,
on a Sunday afternoon.
A knight in cotton armour, she…
is gone too soon.

She sails into the front room,
makes for the shore.
She claims that there is treasure here…

She is the law upon this beach,
A pirate princess out of reach.
While i await the dawn attack,
She hooks my heart behind my back.

I dream she floats on fall air,
heart pulling south.
I’m left to watch her from the ground,
she won't look down…

She clears the porch and the power lines,
I forgot to tell her she can't fly.
She dips a wing over Sanford Street,
My Amelia Earhart, out of reach…

The Toronto Star says I am ‘a mercurial artist who slides effortlessly from rustic roots music to soulful country pop to full-blown rock balladry’. Works for me!
