Down along the riverside, I slipped out of my skin
The night blooms and the wild weeds sighed idly on the wind
Laid up in the rushes and reeds
Honey, are you read for the new breed

The moon wore white all through the night, though swollen up with child
The stars like milk teeth, hard and bright, parading single file
The field and forest gone to sea
They’re just making ready for the new breed

Roses for the first to wake, lilies for the last
Steady eyes regarding you through the plexiglass
Tell us if there’s anything you need
There’s a place laid out here for the new breed

So I made a house of clay down along the shore
Shells and stones as hard as bones, driftwood for a door
Thank you all, now kindly let me be
Except to lay the gifts before the new breed

Down along the riverside I slipped out of my skin
The night blooms and the wild weeds sighed idly on the wind
Laid up in the rushes and reeds
Honey, are you ready for the new breed
