The Boy - text
The boy sits in a field tall grass above his head,
and he’s thinking of the path that his ancestors did tread
and as he’s dreaming of the future a mist does descend,
and he wonders if this is the beginning or is this the end.
And out of the mist a tall creature does appear,
his eyes wide and friendly, his face is full of years,
he says “we’re going on a journey in my hot air balloon,
and the time is now so we must get going soon”.
They flew over the houses and the streets they used to know,
over trains going fast and people going slow,
there was snow on the mountains and boats on the sea,
and there were lovers in the forest carving their names into a tree.
The boys says,,where are we going, where are we going to,
I’m scared of the future and I’m mildly scared of you,
the creature looked down and said ,,don’t be scared of the unknown”,
we’re going to a place in which I have grown
With a sudden gush of wind the balloon fell from the sky,
and the boy shut his eyes and hoped he wouldn’t die,
the creature was calm, he had done this before
so he landed the balloon and he opened the door
The boy walked out and he couldn’t believe his eyes,
a flock of the sheep were floating through the skies
followed by a shepherd going for a ride
and the boy wondered what was going on.
So he walked through this land with the creature by his side,
to his left was a painter, painting the tides,
and to his right a pack of wolves did cry
to the rise and fall of the moon.
They entered the forest and the trees they hung low,
everything was dark and nothing there did grow
apart from a single yellow rose
that the boy put in his hair.
And out of the forest, the snow it did fall,
the creature help the boy away from the storm
out of the snow appeared an empty platform,
and they waited patiently for a train.
From far in the distance a train did arrive
with a thousand polar bears passengers inside,
and the creature said to the boy,,Are you ready for the ride?”
and the boy said ,,yes I think I am”.
So they sped through the hills and over mountains they did go,
over old wooden bridges withered from the cold,
and the boy stared out of the window
and smiled at all he could see.
They travelled through the desert to the setting sun,
over streams and rivers to where it all begun,
and through the wind and the rain until the days were done,
they rode through the land.
And all of a sudden, the train it did stop,
the creature said to the boy,,this is where we both get off”,
and all the polar bear climbed to the top
of the train to wave their goodbyes.
Alone they walked through the featureless land,
no blade of grass no grain of sand,
and on the horizon a great sea did stand,
and the creature said ,,this is where I must go".
At the waters edge, nothing more was said,
the boy looked at the creature, not a single tear was shed,
and the creature laid his hand upon the boys head,
and gave him a wink of his eye.
The creature turned around and walked slowly to the sea,
to go to a place where forever he would be,
and with one great leap he leapt into sea
and in the blink of an eye he was gone.
The boy stood still, alone now on the shore,
he stared into the distance and hoped there would be more,
the yellow rose fell to the floor
and drifted away on the wind.
