A year ago the hill was afire,
The shout of voices, cry of stock,
Was screaming leaves, the moon
Was day, was war, the hill was fire.
(GRANT MCLENNAN – Unkind and Unwise, from the 1984 album Spring Hill Fair)

But the world is still here
I’m pleased to say
and the sun is waist-deep in water now
I can hear it sizzle
Or it might just be the wind
hissing through palm trees
or some other sound, some other
