The Stone Coyotes

Your Hour To Sing

The Stone Coyotes
The Stone Coyotes


Sun in the sky, stay with me awhile
He said, “No, I’m travelling West many a mile”
Across the fields the shadows soon will play
To my surprise I thought I heard him say

This is your hour to sing
Time flies on cruel wings
This is your hour to shine
Oh, Children (Darling), yours and mine

I walked on the banks where the silver river rolls
Where mothers croon to babies with ancient souls
A woman beside her lover lies
He says, “The diamonds from the water are in your eyes”

Others walked here long ago
Where they vanished to the poets don’t know
They say there’ll be time enough to sleep
To be “rocked in the cradle of the deep
