Rapunzel’s Doorbell

Held one hammer, laid one down.
Picked one up, struck the ground.
Every seeker’s mining, mining the golden braid.

Helga and Wyeth, Weston and Charis
watched muse beauty cut baby teeth.
The beginner is master & The Master is always away.

The Nightwatchman buried skeleton keys
under new lawns, while old snail’s sleep.
Daylight, daylight still dawns.
Daylight, daylight still dawns.

Bedrock days in steep recline.
Lives now founded tilt nature’s lines.
The fat man may be laughing, but what can, what can he say?

Old & young, grape & plum.
Hanging fast to the all & none.
Tomorrow’s forgotten seasons come ‘round again to play.

Masks & measures stretch & pull.
The pot’s been polished with old steel wool.
Correct & cure, well-spring water’s The Way.
Correct & cure, well-spring water’s The Way.

Light on the porch, carry it on.
Knock at the door, carry it on. [Chorus]
Moth to the torch, carry it on.
Feather & grouse, carry it on.

Woman of this world,
let your hair down.
Let me climb in.
The Ivory Tower
is nowhere to win.
Let me climb in.
Woman of this world
let your hair down.
Let me climb in.
