This is the CD version of the album "Marshweed in the Garden", containing the eleven tracks available in digital form on the Bandcamp site. It comes shrinkwrapped in a six-paneled standard-size cardstock case, with cd tucked inside the third panel. I recommend getting the CD version of this album if only for the artwork and lyrics panels.
Includes unlimited streaming of Marshweed in the Garden
via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.
I am a finder and a keeper of lost things
A seed blows on the wind, and its random course brings
A new vine where I may have stepped
But now avoid, stick and string prepped to tie and
To tend until it's crept from sprout to heavy
Blossoming of fruit.
I've found creatures wingéd and clawed. Even some men,
Floundering and flawed. I kept them 'til they got re-lost.
A key, a rusty necklace, unhatched egg, a ring.
Half-a-heart charm with a silvery thing dangling from it:
I've kept them all. But of the bunch, what I recall-
The wing- the wing- the wingéd thing has been the most
Heartrending. Though it was meant to fly, freedom wouldn't
Feed it. It was blind and would die, so I took it.
Now on my shoulder, it will sit, when I have time
To spend with it. Because it's mine.
