and growing on skin as hair,
light as a panther walking on the promenade.

Not always making any sense of things
Yet as I offer them a means of escape
I drop on the page and see what springs.

When we ponder all that we might feel inside
Lyrics might not mean what we think we heard
Yet the melody still takes our mind on a ride.
