Sundial Garden

Dada Paradox
Ian M Roure


Sundial Garden (Ian Roure)
I close my eyes and I'm down in the Sundial Garden
The time slows down as you open the door to the garden
No clockwork time telling just sunlight and shadow and day
Sundial Garden
Keeping the New Yorks and Londons at bay
Keep out we say!
Don't sully the stillness we pray
And so we stay...
Sitting in the shade of the arbour
Wysteria frame all you survey

I close my eyes and I'm down in the Sundial Garden
A welcome surprise to be found in the Sundial Garden
The world that you've lost's in the scent on the shimmering air
Sundial Garden
Slowly the Summer sun crosses the sky
All that underlies: a sight for city-worn eyes
As time floats by...
You sit under the dial in the centre
A flightless lion standing by
