Remembering a Beginning

Elephant Revival

By bonnie Paine

Out on the road, endless fields grow
Where no one knows
But everybody’s wondering
Where does it go, the wind that blows
Where from does it come
How everybody’s wondering

Alone she cries, let me be inside
The ocean tide
Remembering a beginning
When the water climbed, up the mountainside
Deep and open wide
Remembering a beginning

There’s a fire burning, in the middle of this turning
Wild and yearning
For everything, for everything
Remains inside, these changing skies
Through waves in time

The way to home, how the sparrow knows
Through the days they’ve flown
How everybody’s wondering
What has seen these skies, below, up high
What the skies have seen
Remembering a beginning
