a robe. you know... a backwards snuggie.


Eglantine a pickin' roses,
on a purple moor.
'Neath a sky of blue-gray,
wrapped in thunder's roar:

ohhhhhhhhh

A sapphire glitters,
an emerald gleams,
But life, darling Eglantine
is not what it seems;
Take care darling Eglantine,
peace in your dreams.

Eglantine on a rocky beach,
shells in her hand.
Walking amidst the crashing waves,
beating on the sand:

ohhhhhhhhhh

A sapphire glitters,
an emerald gleams,
But life, darling Eglantine
is not what it seems;
Take care darling Eglantine,
peace in your dreams.


The author's comments:
This piece isn't really about a message, but more of a mental picture. I tried to come up with some of the most beautiful settings I could, starting with sights, and then adding sounds, touches, etc. The song is mostly in e minor with a switch to g major (its relative) during the chorus, and is accompanied by acoustic guitar. It is meant to be peaceful and calming, and a kind of reassurance.
