SONG & LYRICS : “Be” by Neil Diamond

If you have not seen the movie : “Jonathan Livingston Seagull” or read the book by the same title, by author Richard Bach, I recommend it!

To the real Jonathan Livingston Seagull who lives within us all!

On a painted sky
Where the clouds are hung
For the poet’s eye
You may find him
If you may find him

On a distant shore
By the wings of dreams
Through an open door
You may know him
If you may

As a page that aches for words
Which speaks on a theme that’s timeless
While the Sun God will make for your day
As a song in search of a voice that is silent
And the one God will make for your way

And we dance
To a whispered voice
Overheard by the sould
Undertook by the heart
And you may know it
If you may know it

While the sand
Would become the stone
Which begat the spark
Turned to living bone
Holy, holy
Sanctus, sanctus

As a page that aches for word
Which speaks on a theme that is timeless
While the Sun God will make for your day
As a song in search of a voice that is silent
And the one God will make for your day

Neil Diamond

      1. Absolutely true for Be… I use to sing to him when he was a kitten (and also some now and then): “My little Be… is wild and free… my little Be and I, we were meant to be…” He just purrrred and layed his head over my shoulder… purrrrfect love ❤🐱
