Yes, I know I have a lot to catch up – but it is so wonderful to make new discoveries every now and again. Today’s gem is Bruce’s first poem, published in his college literary magazine. Read more at http://www.springsteenlyrics.com/lyrics/s/seascape.php
If one reads carefully, you can surely hear some traces of great things to come … I’m thinking Spirit in the night …
Earth Children turn their new eyes upward,
As the rain falls into outstreched arms.
The world moves with beauty beneath their bodies.
The frenzied sea crys upon the shore.
The dawn infant breathes its first crystal breath.
As nature sweet incense flows through time.
The cycle of birth has now turned once around,
and set into motion the cycle of life
Young mountain lovers quench their thirst for sunlight,
and wet their tongues in the forest land stream.
Then bathe neath the silver waters of the moon
Through the night star’s great prism frolic their dreams.
Amid the towering comstolk forests the new ones scamper
They run to eat of lifes blessed grain
The deep crop of summer is ready for harvest.
and autumns’ celebration has come again.
