1. Caruth Park

From the recording White Rock Lake

I wrote the lyrics as part of a series of urban landscape poems done on location in Dallas.  This is a scene I witnessed at a local park.  I also wrote the music.  I play a 1927 Weissenborn and sing.  Chirag Gokani plays a Fender Precision bass.


Clusters of new leaves
filter sunlight like families
of translucent children
while mothers sit like
the long curved trunks
of the circle of trees
