Avalon

I'll meet you at the ocean
When the fog is drifting in
I'll bring a woolen blanket
And baked beans in a tin

The mist will settle all around
But we'll be warm inside
This cozy place just made for two
A cool, safe paradise

Please will you light a fire for us?
I've already gathered wood
Then we can warm our hands up
My coat has a cozy hood

And when the sun comes shining
The fog will disappear
Let's walk together down the beach
And leave our troubles here

Time has grown so precious,
What better way to spend
A lazy hour or two alone
Getting acquainted once again

Go here for more on Avalon and Santa Catalina

Open your eyes
Dream but don't guess.
Your biggest surprise
Comes after Yes.

~~ Muriel Rukeyser from "Yes"
