Poet, musician, and professor Jim Clark has just released The Service of Song: Words by Byron Herbert Reece/Music by Jim Clark.
The cd includes the text of the poems set to music by Clark, including I Go by Ways of Rust and Flame, The Elm and the Moon, and The Altitudes of Love.
I Go By Ways of Rust and Flame
I go by ways of rust and flame
Beneath the bent and lonely sky;
Behind me on the ways I came
I see the hedges lying bare,
But neither question nor reply.
A solitary thing am I
Upon the roads of rust and flame
That thin at sunset to the air.
I call upon no word nor name,
And neither question nor reply
But walk alone as all men must
Upon the roads of flame and rust.
The cd is $10.00 (plus $2.00 for shipping) and may be ordered from Eternal Delight Productions, P.O. Box 7861, Wilson, NC 27895.
