Bless you 
and I deeply do 
no longer resolute 
and I call to you 

But the water go so cold, 
and you do lose 
what you don't hold. 

This is an old song, 
these are old blues. 
This is not my tune, 
but it's mine to use. 
And the seabirds 
where the fear once grew 
will flock with a fury, 
and they will bury what'd come for you 

Down where I darn with the milk-eyed mender 
you and I, and a love so tender, 
is stretched-on the hoop where I stitch-this adage: 
"Bless this house and its heart so savage." 

And all that I want, and all that I need 
and all that I've got is scattered like seed. 
And all that I knew is moving away from me. 
(and all that I know is blowing 
like tumbleweed) 

And the mealy worms 
in the brine will burn 
in a salty pyre, 
among the fauns and ferns. 

And the love we hold, 
and the love we spurn, 
will never grow cold 
only taciturn. 

And I'll tell you tomorrow. 
Sadie, go on home now. 
Bless those who've sickened below; 
bless us who've chosen so. 

And all that I've got 
and all that I need 
I tie in a knot 
that I lay at your feet. 
I have not forgot, 
but a silence crept over me. 
(So dig up your bone, 
exhume your pinecone, my sadie)
