TEXT

Ev'ry day our name is chang'd,
Say stones colliding into waves.
Go read our names on the shore,
Say waves colliding into stones.
Birds o'er water call their names
To each other again and again
To say where they are.
Where have you been, my small bird?
    I know our names will change one day
    To stones in a field of anemones and lavender>
Before you reach the farthest wave,
Before our shadows disappear in a starry blur,
Call out your name to say where we are.
