  • Fill me with light,
    Fill me with light of the Western kind where shadows are the real thing
    And the shadow life is the shadowland of lava and geology.

    Fill me with light
    'Cause I'm living up here in the grey blanket of the wet Northeastern kind

    Fill me with light of the blue crystal window breaks
    Patched back into the sky bends.

    Let me rest on the shadow bench in the sunshine cave
