Music Monday: A Sun Will Sing0
In high school at some point—sophomore, junior, senior year?—I went through the requisite e.e. cummings phase. He had this lovely poem:
[i carry your heart with me(i carry it in]
BY E. E. CUMMINGS
i carry your heart(i carry it in my heart)
And so around the same time a local (Pittsburgh) band I loved also happened to do a lovely song inspired by it, “A Sun Will Sing,” by The Affordable Floors:
A SUN WILL SING
The Affordable Floors
Sky of sky Higher than soul can hope or mind can hide.
This is the wonder that’s keeping the stars apart.We’ll speak in rhymes, we’ll whisper these
Songs of love. Hold these words close to your heart as I hold them in mine.
This is the wonder that’s keeping the stars apart.You are my fate, you are my world.
Know you are whatever a moon has meant or a sun will sing.
These are the steps that we take over broken ground.all pleasures known to us
all reasons thrown to us
all knowing grown from life in this broken ground
