about

The lyrics of this song are based on the poem
"Easter Morning" Amy Clampitt (1920 - 1994).
The latter line of the song is lifted from the hymn "On this Day Earth Sall Ring" from the piae Caniones, 1582 (translated by Jane M. Joseph)

lyrics

a stone at dawn
cold water in the basin
these walls' rough plaster
imageless
after the hammering
of so much insistence
on the need for naming
after the travesties
that passed as faces,
grace: the unction
of sheer nonexistence
upwelling in this
hyacinthine freshet
of the unnamed
the faceless


on this day
earth shall ring
with the song
children sing
