Description: Closed Cherry Stands
(Hills Snyder/Caralyn Snyder)

talking cherry stands and cider
eases the constant pull of buzzards bold
far in horizon circle higher
holding our breathing while the air grows old

hold on to fathoms burrowing deep
as from the burnt peaks sorrow seeps

as cornfields overtake thoughts of pine and rust
horizonís reign becomes that of dust
holding onto that hidden moon of trust
we simple say and do that which we must

quickly land becomes barren to the soul
lost to the pull of ponderosa pines

horizons lay muddy in this flattening bowl
of lingering passages uneven lines

talking cherry stands and cider
eases the constant pull of buzzards bold

Caralyn: vocals; Hills: vocals, guitar; Kate: vocals, keys; Joe: bass, drums
