Elnuh - Latte // powdered sugar

I recently discovered and fell in love with Elnuh, a great local (San Antonio) band that deserves to be enjoyed far and wide. Give 'em a listen, and check out more of their tunes on Bandcamp.

The Waking - Theodore Roethke

Vincent van Gogh. Orchard Bloom With Poplars. 1889.


I wake to sleep, and take my waking slow.
I feel my fate in what I cannot fear.
I learn by going where I have to go.

We think by feeling. What is there to know?
I hear my being dance from ear to ear.
I wake to sleep, and take my waking slow.

Of those so close beside me, which are you?
God bless the Ground! I shall walk softly there,
And learn by going where I have to go.

Light takes the Tree; but who can tell us how?
The lowly worm climbs up a winding stair;
I wake to sleep, and take my waking slow.

Great Nature has another thing to do
To you and me; so take the lively air,
And, lovely, learn by going where to go.

This shaking keeps me steady. I should know.
What falls away is always. And is near.
I wake to sleep, and take my waking slow.
I learn by going where I have to go.
