In The Middle At The Bottom




In the middle of a fog
There’s nothing to be seen
It’s like an island in the cloud
Nothing’s quiet, nothing’s loud

At the bottom of a well
There’s water to be found
See it ushering from the mouth
Of the little water pump
that draws it out

In the middle of a wood
There’s magic in the air
Mushrooms pushing up from the loam
Where the little beetles hide
and call their home

At the bottom of a lake
A sleeping Bluebird lies
Safe in the dreams of a watery grave
Now we drink from the bottle
that bears its name

In the middle of a frost
They found his frozen bones
What was he doing?
Did he fall asleep?
With a fire on the range
and a blanket on his knee

At the bottom of a hill
I’ll wait a while for you
To go swimming in the lake
Is as cold as a human body can take

In the middle of the night
That’s when you see the stars
I can see Orion’s Belt,
Casseopoea, satelites as well
