Home 9 Composers 9 ANNE LINDSAY 9 IN SALMON DAYS

LYRICS

Rain drops, green water- clouds drape the trees
Whisting through the green days
White ribbons tumble through hemlock and spruce
In salmon days.
Everything dripping, rain to the bone
Rain to the bone of this thing
Golden creek rushing- green moss hanging 
In salmon days. 

Chorus
In dark pools, green water 
Life is again
Stirring in clouds in a stream
Look in this mirror, you might see yourself
In salmon days.

Gulls wheel and gather, raven and bear 
Eagle and wolf will be there
Kinship and clanship come to give thanks 
In salmon days.
Fin flashing golden, cobbled green water
Home of the Coho and Chum
Destined and fated- life force in stream
In salmon days. 

Chorus

Giving- life giving to eagle and bear
Flashing in rain circle pools
In kindelling light a season is marked
In salmon days.
Humped,  hooked and jagged- fighting upstream
Life in a death- death in life.
Leaping and jumping, the pageant and ballet 
In salmon days.

Chorus

Tumbling, gasping, grotesque, majestic
Battered and rolling downstream
Turning, returning, the circle is burning
In salmon days.
In a circle of fire the waves tumble in
In salmon days.
