My cousin Steve recorded my first concert in Edinburgh at the Festival of Spirituality and Peace in St. John’s Chuch Hall on 6th August.

The two pieces that I haven’t showcased here are:

By the Sea

Meet me where the fields of clover
line the ocean, there to stroll.
Take my hand and lead me over
the battered bridges of my soul.
You have given me
the courage to be free;
you have given my passion wings.
You’re my star; you’re all I live for;
you’re the song the gold moon sings.

On Hjerting Strand

So here I stand, on Hjerting Strand, listening to geese in flight.
The moon is full, and the breeze is cool; there’s some frost in the air tonight.
And I can see in the distance Venus glowing very bright.

Red lanterns spark from the windmill park stationed far out at sea.
The lighthouse flare repeats “Beware!” in regular sets of three.
I cannot claim to have an aim apart from being free,
so I can find the peace of mind that’s waiting here for me.

ooA fool spends his leisure
ooon clothes made to measure
how cool he can act in the sun.

ooThe root of my pleasure,
oomy only true treasure,
is you and me having some fun.

I climb the hill to my windowsill with its fairly generous view.
From here it seems the moon’s soft beams are bathed in a blend of blue.
And that’s okay, as I have to say I’m feeling lonely too.
So while I sit and write a bit, I’m looking out for you.

ooA fool spends his leisure
ooon clothes made to measure
how cool he can act in the sun.
ooThe root of my pleasure,
oomy only true treasure,
is you and me having some fun.
