Light comes slow
To the Eastern Somes
Fades in a gentle glow
To our borrowed home

On an endless day
Sewn in seamless gray
At times it's a lovely change
To have to stay in and wait out the rain

We braved the cold
As a day was born
We rode from coast to coast
on a carriage road

And we climbed unknown
Where the lichens grow
Vermillion on stacks of stones
That we followed to find the rambling dome

And we paused, huddled on the silent mountain
Wondering what this view will become
Buried underneath whatever’s coming

With our love
Pronounced in the silence
Of Mount Desert Island cold and new
And rousing our youth

Soak it slow, we’ve years to go
