Follow The Heron

This song is by Cathie Ryan.

The back of the winter is broken

And light lingers long by the door

The seeds of the summer have spoken

In gowans that bloom on the shore

By night and day we'll sport and we'll play

And delight as the dawn dances over the bay

Sleep blows the breath of the morning away

And we follow the heron home

In darkness we cradled our sorrow

And stoked all our fires with fear

These bones that lie empty and hollow

Are ready for gladness to cheer

By night and day we'll sport and we'll play

And delight as the dawn dances over the bay

Sleep blows the breath of the morning away

And we follow the heron home

Long may you sing of the salmon

And the snow-scented sound of your home

While the north wind delivers its sermon

Of ice and salt water and stone

By night and day we'll sport and we'll play

And delight as the dawn dances over the bay

Sleep blows the breath of the morning away

And we follow

By night and day we'll sport and we'll play

And delight as the dawn dances over the bay

Sleep blows the breath of the morning away

And we follow the heron home
