From the album Cosmic Summer Sojourn

Poem by Alfred Kreymborg, Music and Arrangement by me

Watching the grass grow, sitting on the hillside . . . daydreaming, feeling an impulse to fly . . . giving peace

See you on the Island of Peace!

Lyrics

I love all the clouds that go sailing away
and I’d love to be one of those ships for a day
in a sea that is blue as the sky is today
in a sea that is blue as the sky is today

I’d love to go fishing beside an old stream
and wishing no more than I’d wish in a dream
and catch just the sun at the end of a beam
and catch just the sun at the end of a beam

I’d love to go riding the wind or a breeze
and ripple the stream or pass over the seas
and land on an island, the Island of Peace
and land on an island, the Island of Peace

I’d love to come home with the stars in the night
and give every being a little more light
and hold out my hand to them and say Good Night
and hold out my hand to them and say Lovely Good Night
