"Empyrean Dawn" from The Circling Hour
by Iona
Released in 2006 Track: 1 / Time: 7:49

How wonderful this world
A fragment of a fiery sun
How lovely and how small
The smallest seed in secret grows
Thrusting upward and so soon
The bidding of the light

The bud unfurls into a rose
The wings within the white cocoon
Are perfected for flight
The migrant bird in winter fled
Shall come again with spring
And build, in this same shady tree

How wonderful this life
No random path this great design
How fragile and how bold
The mystery of creative thought
The wonder of the human frame
Of spirit and of soul

When life within the nidus wakes
The formless taking shape unfolds
How complex and how strange
The heart created free to choose
The quintessential breath is given
In love’s own image born
