Lake Virginia closed away for the last time
elm leaves fall on lachrymose endings
muffle your cheeks and try to look sober
as the Julian calendar points to October

No sooner had the dogs arrived
where gossans mark the paths once tread bare
no quiet for whom a hero it rendered
regaled with hymns as the axis surrendered

But how could I miss the rain
when its falling right on my head
I know you can relate
from the minute I was late
I knew I had you pegged
wrong from the start

How could I miss the sun
when its burning my shoulderblades
I know you can relate
how embellished with a braid
and braces in a smile
but I'm not gonna pry

How could I miss the rain
with a lake right in front of me
I know you can relate
pardon me for being blatant
from the minute I was late
I knew I could be wrong on you

Lake Minor I am still so fond of you.

Brigades of reunions lost on the Rhone
Like "going home" carved in the soapstone
neglect will dry it up in a season
now march the muddy flats
against the freezing
