Terrapin Station

----------------

Inspiration move me brightly
like a song with scents and colors
hold away despair

More than this I will not ask
faced with mystery's dark advance
statements just seem vain at last

Some rise, some fall, some climb
to get to Terrapin

Counting stars by candelight
all are dim but one is bright,
The spiral light of Venus
rising first and shining best

Oh! from the northwest corner
of a brand new crescent moon
crickets and cicadas sing
and play a different tune: Terrapin Station
in the shadow of the moon: Terrapin Station
and I know we'll be there soon

Terrapin! I can't figure out
Terrapin! if it's the end or beginning
Terrapin! but the train's put its brakes on
and the whistle is screaming
