lyrics

South Lake 
(Bella Hardy) 
 

Between the heavens and the land 
the whole world captured in this shining, shaking skin 
 
A temple tall as it is deep 
A thin and shifting double take,
Nan Hu, South Lake 
The sun from stormy skies has rolled 
to turn the grey to gold 
 
Mountain circle hold me here  
I tunnelled through and I found 
White clouds in muddy water 
 
Between red flowers and concrete pathways 
people rush through muggy days  
while all around the whole scene plays again 
 
We are pond skaters 
We are boatmen crossing to and fro 
We are the watchful eyes who stretch our wings  
and drop and soar into this complicated and messy world below 
 
Oh to tumble in and down 
Oh to tumble in and drown 
among white clouds in muddy water 
 
Between each tree, white painted waist to root 
I sit with arms bare and rippled 
as the breeze upon the shallows 
 
And folded seed pods large as lemon 
hang down from these unknown trees 
in unknown lands with unknown words 
It’s leaves dance and sing out twice to me 
 
Once above and once below 
Once in sunlight once in shadow 
White clouds in muddy water
 
Oh to tumble in and down 
Oh to tumble in and drown 
among white clouds in muddy water
