Show You the Night
by Anne Carol Mitchell

A wall of dark from East to West
Falls upon the Earth to rest
The Earth too rests
It’s not the end
It’s how night begins.

Night begins as a planet’s flying
Round a star that’s slowly dying
In a sea of many
Endless, countless lights

Where will you find shelter?
What lights will guide you home?
Where is the North Star?
Polaris where did you go?

A planet spins from West to East
Round a star that burns and light has ceased (pause)
Stars they burn
Souls they yearn
For deep, dark, night

Where will you find shelter?
What lights will guide you home?
Where is the North Star?
Polaris where did you go?

When you get lonesome
For starlight
I’ll wrap you in a blanket
And show you the night (3x)

about

Anne Carol Mitchell San Francisco, California

Music is a process of interrelationship for me. I craft musical dialogues that bring awareness to the connections in our human, plant and creature communities.
My tools range from acoustic guitar and the voice to electronica.
My work has been heard in collaboration with poet Judy Grahn, in an ensemble that toured with Ani DiFranco, and the Experimental Performance Institute.
