The Knife Colouring Of Pigeons Lyrics

Northern forms existed in their own homes

Thousand – Yellow – Cocoons

Under – Over – Through

A few southern vegetable forms on the mountains of Borneo

Under – Over – Through

Donkey – Peacock – Goose

In the mouth of the river

Strange – Scene – It is

Every – Thing – In flames

The sky with lightning and the water, luminous

A strange – Scene – It is

Under – Over – Through

Six weeks old Henrietta smiled for the first time

Tail – Habits – Proof

Instinct – That – Moves

Emma saw him smile not only with lips but eyes

Erasmus – Grab – A spoon

Europe – Hides – Wool

Mr Peacock and Captain Beaufort

Endemic – Alpine – Grooves

Bread-fruit – Cinnamon – Tunes

Tonight it’s blowing thick bodies of spray whirled across the bay

Whatever – Might – Have been

The cause – Of the – Retreat

Columbia livia

Great ages through

Course of days

Tumblers, Jacobins

Beak shapes, skeletal traits

Runts and Carriers

Wooden hexagonal cage

Pouters and Fantails

Tail feathers at what age?

(The delight of once again being home)

Grey and white spotted

(The delight of once again being home)

Markings in making

(The delight of once again being home)

My great amusement

Behind Land house a gentle cooing

Behind Land house the offspring’s moving

Behind Land house a gentle cooing

The delight of once again being home

The delight of once again being home

The delight of once again being home

The delight of once again being home

The delight of once again being home

The delight of once again being home
