about

Harriet came from a classroom, from two hands told to stop creating, and a young heart seeing the world come apart into colors...

lyrics

Harriet oh Harriet, the stars are falling upon your page in ink and stone – oh Harriet, the stones are broken to sand that cloaks the sleep that 'cumbers your weary load – but there, there were seen such painted sides of page, behind the shapes the colors will erase, so quick your hand to scrawl the shapes in place – but there were seen such painted sides of page, beneath the hand did whiten and erase – and suddenly the black and scattered lines did fall away – the shade of pen and stone did deeply sink into refrain – the chorusing of colors burst as from a page, as lightning in the rain - and as though in dream she whispered soft and felt them seen… but there were seen such painted sides of page, behind the shape and shade the form will lay… so Harriet, Harriet the stars are falling upon your page in ink and stone – oh Harriet, the stones will break and sand will fall away…
