A Woman's Beauty (feat. Hazel O'Connor & Christine Scarry)
A woman's beauty is like a white Frail bird, like a white sea-bird alone At daybreak, after stormy night Between two furrows upon the ploughed land A sudden storm and it was thrown Between dark furrows on the ploughed land Between dark furrows on the ploughed land How many centuries spent The sedentary soul In toils of measurement Beyond eagle or mole Beyond hearing or seeing Or Archimedes' guess To raise into being That loveliness? A strange, unserviceable thing A fragile, exquisite, pale shell To the vast troubled waters bring To the loud sands before day has broken The storm arose and suddenly fell Amid the dark before day had broken What death? What discipline? Bonds no man could unbind Being imagined within The labyrinth of the mind What pursuing or fleeing What wounds, what bloody press Dragged into being This loveliness?
