Recorded on Walking Into White (2015)

Jackdaws rising 
All together 
Glinting eyes 
And jet black feathers 

Rough cries 
For the dark is falling 

Wind among the trees 
Rustling of the leaves 
Scudding clouds 
And stars appearing 

Startled by the flapping 
Of a bat wing just above her 
A rabbit dives beneath a shrub 
And trembles under cover 

Light starts to fade 
Night calls the shades 
Of others 
Who have gone before us 

Hark to them 
Welcome them 
Draw breath 
And join the chorus
