Smith Patti - Blue Poles

rate me

Mother, as I write, the sun dissolves<br />

Blood life streaming, cross my hand<br />

And these words, these words<br />

<br />

Hope dashed, immortal hope<br />

Hope streaking the canvas sky<br />

<br />

Blue poles infinitely winding<br />

As I write, as I write<br />

Blue poles infinitely winding<br />

As I write, as I write<br />

<br />

We joined the long caravan<br />

Hungry, dreaming, going West<br />

Just for work, just to get a job<br />

And we never got lucky, we just forged on<br />

<br />

And the dust, the endless dust<br />

Like a plague it covered everything<br />

Hal fell with the fever<br />

And mother I did what I could<br />

<br />

Blue poles infinitely winding<br />

As I write, as I write<br />

Blue poles infinitely winding<br />

As I write, as I write<br />

<br />

We prayed, we prayed for rain<br />

I never wanted to see the sun again<br />

<br />

All my dresses you made by hand<br />

We left behind on the road<br />

Hal died in my arms<br />

We buried him by the river<br />

<br />

Blue poles infinitely winding<br />

As I write, as I write<br />

Blue poles infinitely winding<br />

As I write, as I write, I write
