Child of the Wind

From Bruce Cockburn (long “o”, silent “c” and “k”).  Lyrics from “Child of the Wind”.  Cockburn’s lyrics (some of them) are so wonderful.  Some of you may be familiar with a tune entitled “Wondering Where The Lions Are”.  That is a Cockburn tune.  Here are some selected lines from “Child of the Wind”.  Hearing him sing it is worth your time:

Child of the Wind I love the pounding of hooves / I love engines that roar / I love the wild music of waves on the shore

I love the wild music of waves on the shore / And the spiral perfection of a hawk when it soars / Love my sweet woman down to the core There’s roads and there’s roads / And they call, can’t you hear it? / Roads of the earth / And roads of the spirit

The best roads of all / Are the ones that aren’t certain / One of those is where you’ll find me / Till they drop the big curtain

Hear the wind moan In the bright diamond sky These mountains are waiting Brown-green and dry I’m too old for the term But I’ll use it anyway I’ll be a child of the wind Till the end of my days

Little round planet In a big universe Sometimes it looks blessed Sometimes it looks cursed Depends on what you look at obviously But even more it depends on the way that you see

Hear the wind moan In the bright diamond sky These mountains are waiting Brown-green and dry I’m too old for the term But I’ll use it anyway I’ll be a child of the wind Till the end of my days

  1. Being Canajun, I of course am a Bruce C fan, and in fact have followed him since his High Winds, White Sky days. Check out his ‘Waiting for a Miracle’ singles collection if you want a one stop great collection of his work. Dude, but you got good taste in music! 🙂

    1. John – Now that I think about it … I do remember you mentioning you’ve got some Canajun flowing through. And, therefore, OK … you knowing about Bruce Cockburn makes sense. I’m glad that you like the man’s music like I do. I will go after the “Waiting for a Miracle” collection. Our tastes and experiences sometimes cross paths, eh?

    1. Dr. Prior, I am thankful that we connect through the blogs. At times you speak into what my heart was about in a post … and at other times you speak ahead of what my heart was about (in a post). Indeed, indeed: “But even more it depends on the way that you see.” Peace.
