Forget-Me-Not

From Anne’s album Angle of the Light

I have always loved “Parsley, Sage Rosemary and Thyme” and the interweaving of melodies and words. This was an attempt to do something similar.

Marigold and roses, columbine and twining morning glory
lavender, sweet william, forget-me-not
Violet and daisies, buttercup and lily-of-the-valley
evening star and blue bell, forget-me-not

There’s a wind that’s calling, from the north sometimes
and it’s no matter how fair the weather
It wakes me from my sleeping, I’m restless to be moving
from the place where we lie together

Love don’t turn your face
Don’t wander far from this place
The moon, she walks the sky
she leads the way from you and I

When I was a little girl, I could hold the moon
do it just by lifting, lifting up my hand
to the sky at night, as I lay by my window
Just the stars and I together

Marigold and roses, columbine and twining morning glory
lavender, sweet willliam, forget-me-not
Violet and daisies, buttercup and lily-of-the-valley
evening star and blue bell, forget-me-not
