“You thought the leaden winter would bring you down forever, But you rode upon a steamer to the violence of the sun. And the colors of the sea bind your eyes with trembling mermaids, And you touch the distant beaches with tales of brave Ulysses, How his naked ears were tortured by the sirens sweetly singing, For the sparkling waves are calling you to kiss their white laced lips. And you see a girl's brown body dancing through the turquoise, And her footprints make you follow where the sky loves the sea. And when your fingers find her, she drowns you in her body, Carving deep blue ripples in the tissues of your mind. The tiny purple fishes run laughing through your fingers, And you want to take her with you to the hard land of the winter.”
“My name is CalypsoAnd I have lived aloneI live on an island And I waken to the dawnA long time agoI watched him struggle with the seaI knew that he was drowningAnd I brought him into meNow todayCome morning lightHe sails awayAfter one last nightI let him go.
My name is CalypsoMy garden overflowsThick and wild and hiddenIs the sweetness there that growsMy hair it blows longAs I sing into the windMy name is CalypsoAnd I have lived aloneI live on an islandI tell of nightsWhere I could taste the salt on his skin.”
“Well the danger on the rocks is surely pastStill I remain tied to the mastCould it be that I have found my home at lastHome at last . . .She serves the smooth retsinaShe keeps me safe and warmIt's just the calm before the stormCall in my reservationSo long hey thanks my friendI guess I'll try my luck again . . .”
