Waltzing At The Rainbow`s End
on: August 04, 2020, 18:41:43
The last waltz ... stage play version
The opening lines are adapted from a W H Auden poem .

Waltzing At The Rainbow`s End


the play begins as an ocean
is folded and hung to dry
seven stars go squawking
like geese about the sky

ropes and rollers rumble storms
where the world falls away
with bricks of many colours
you build an arch
day after day

should the rainmaker relent
in your company I`d be honoured to pretend
waltzing at the rainbows end

climbing through a trapdoor
down the tree of your life
ransacked by ravens
dreams open to the sky

the prompter reads backwards
the hero loses his way
between maidens and villains
he wanders
all over the stage

on paper wings to ascend
start the music we`ll pretend
waltzing at the rainbows end

waltzing at the rainbows end
waltzing at the rainbows end
hold on with your eyes
the curtain descends
waltzing at the rainbows end


Robert Cordrey July 2020

Dear Robert, what a great song and lyrics you have put together here. This is a faritale song and people like me who come from HC Anderson's farity land get easily catched by your voice and the story in your song.
Great craftmanship and a perfect recording.

@robertkc ,
It feels like this song came straight out of a magical fantasy story. The combination of instruments works nicely and the harmonies create such a beautiful ambience. I really enjoyed listening :)
