LYRICS

1. Let us probe the silent places

Let us probe the silent places, let us seek what luck betide us;
Let us journey to a lonely land I know.
There’s a whisper on the night-wind, there’s a star agleam to guide us,

And the Wild is calling, calling . . . let us go.

[from “The Call of the Wild,” Robert Service (1916)]

2. Let us embark into silver twilight

Let us embark into silver twilight,
carefully through immense sacred silence
swiftly within frigid waters
embrace forgotten names.
Here where our dreamings meet memories distant
we will be free to quicken our yearning.
Here let us declare: “Golden courage abounds,” travelling on ever-changing horizons
singing dawn’s light,
tracing, awakening faceted prisms.
Ancient memory holds
olded grey dawn, infinite translucence, pale ice-blue sky.

Let us welcome transformative vision,
rediscovery, distant sunlight aflame.
Glassy sculpture, glowing snow-covered jade,
blinding turquoise, rhythmic indigo swell,
brilliant frost, pyramid sentinels, inky violet deeps.

[Marcus Lund (2012), by permission of the author]

3. Isbjørn

Isbjørn –
Powerfully pads across the ice-flows,
Silently swims across the frigid seas,
Mystic creature.
“I am the Ice-bear, mystic creature of the polar spaces, king of my domain.
I haunt the ice unseen, unheard;
I am predator supreme, prey to none.
Isbjørn!

[Nicholas Fairbank (2012)]
