song 27

a.
Days of the week, works of mercy
Liberal arts, sorrows of Mary
Lent rolls right through April
Doctors treating syncope
Take kerosene to the stains in the Chantilly
All right then, things… spill
Home late – she hung the moon
Owl whistles an Air Force tune
Look for her at harvest time
They say she hung the moon

b.
Nearly the end of the year
Elgar and Homecoming
Marching Band and Color Guard
Another hard spring
April wind begs for soul
Reaches the hand of June
That’s why I long for shorter days
They say she hung the moon
Fight on for Annandale
Wave the Red and White
Grab a ball and watch us go
For Annandale tonight
Go Atoms knock ‘em cold
Fight and never die
Victory will be our goal
For Annandale High!

c.
Court. Pomp and Circumstance
The clarinet could swing
Elementary education
And a faith in resurrection
The sun walks through the night for love
Reunion:
The moon’s one

d.
When deep injury is done
We never recover
Until we forgive
This is Easter
Forgiveness does not change the past
It does enlarge the future:
How we are with her

She saves the sky at harvest time
They say she hung the moon

e.
The eighth is the queen counting to seven
Returning the card turned by Simeon
Her long dog-eared April
Campus Crusade for Christ

Annandale Atoms.
Moon is recollection
Expectation’s her sister
The sixth sorrow is the one that lasts forever
Yes, my dear I faint

The moon’s alone sweeping her yard
Saturday’s child works hard for her living.
Beauty is where the cloud at night
Breaks across light – the withering
Mortality, breaking

f.
Here to Chantilly
Flag and drum
Hung the moon for free
Eight in the family
Receiving the body
She quotes Cry the Beloved Country
What she achieved and will achieve
Too short and so much
Prophecy flight loss
Meet cross receive
Light force – invisible push
The card turned by Simeon
She was a 19-year-old freshman

g.
Saturday’s child, the work of waiting,
Color guard, another hard spring
2002, April hits the heat of June
No wind to speak of, some clouds, no rain
Nothing; we skipped our spring

Flag and drum. Enigma variation
Elementary education and a faith in resurrection
The way the sun finds night through love of the moon
Reunion. The moon’s one
Profound gratitude

Nothing to do she hung the moon
Owl whistles an air force tune
Over to Chantilly
Doctors treating syncope –
Yes, my dear I faint

h.
By power of her happiness.
A year ago, a year from now
She hangs the moon, and forgives the night
We find the sky, at last
Forgiveness enlarges the struggle
It does not change the past

Beauty is where the cloud
Breaks across the light –
The withering, the mortality
Campus Crusade for Christ

Only the moon can Simon your crisis
And Simeon your future
Elgar Road, Pomp and Circumstance
Enigma variations

Prophecy, flight
Loss, meet, cross
Receive and then the waiting
The work of resurrection
Peace and transformation

The eighth sorrow of Mary is the queen
Counting and counting up to seven

prime
Days of the week, works of mercy
Liberal arts, the sorrows of Mary
Lent rolls right through April
Doctors treating syncope
Kerosene the stains in the Chantilly
All right then, things do spill
Home late – she hung the moon
Owl whistles an Air Force tune
Look for her at harvest time
They say she hung the moon

Nearly the end of the year
Elgar and Homecoming
Marching Band and Color Guard
Another hard spring
April wind begs for soul
Reaches for the hand of June
That’s why I long for shorter days
They say she hung the moon

When deep injury is done
We never recover
Until we forgive
This is Easter
Forgiveness does not change the past
It does enlarge the future:
How we are with her

Annandale Atoms.
Moon is recollection
Expectation is her sister
Sorrow six is the one
That lasts forever
Yes, my dear I faint

The sun finds night through love of the moon
Reunion. The moon’s one
Profound gratitude
Beauty is where the cloud
Breaks across light –
The withering, the mortality
Campus Crusade for Christ

Here to Chantilly
Flag and drum
She hung the moon for free
Eight in the family
Receiving the body
She quotes
Cry the Beloved Country
The moon’s alone sweeping her yard
Saturday’s child works hard for a living
What she achieved and will achieve
Too short and then too much
Prophecy, flight, loss
Meet, cross, receive
Then the waiting

Only the moon can Simon your crisis
And Simeon your future
Elgar Road, Pomp and Circumstance
Enigma variations
Elementary education, a faith in resurrection

The eighth is the queen counting to seven
Returning the card turned by Simeon
Her long dog-eared April
Campus Crusade for Christ

Fight on for Annandale
Wave the Red and White
Grab a ball and watch us go
For Annandale tonight
Go Atoms knock ‘em cold
Fight and never die
Victory will be our goal
For Annandale High!

Be with me.
I’m with you.
