One More Morning (Memoir/Oratorio)

牋牋牋牋牋牋牋牋牋牋牋?牋牋牋牋牋??Gordon Bok

牋牋牋牋牋牋牋牋牋牋牋?牋牋牋牋牋?

牋牋牋牋牋?This piece is my attempt to remember of picture a single night of purse-seining for herring off the Maine Coast around (say) 1970.

牋牋牋牋牋?It begins in the afternoon when the fisherman has finished his 'day job' and is looking at a full night of chasing herring, through to the daylight, when the sardine-carriers are hauling the catch off to the cannery, and he can sort out his gear and go home.

牋牋牋牋牋?It is mostly conversations.?Some I've heard on fishing boats, some on marine radio, some over beers ashore and some imaginary, trying to get into the heads of those whose skill at finding and catching these spooky fish is truly uncanny.

牋牋牋牋?I

牋牋牋牋?Now give me strength at the end of the day

牋牋牋牋?out on the deep

牋牋牋牋?O give me strength to go back on the water

牋牋牋牋?down in the dark of the moon

牋牋牋牋?Out on the deep, out on the deep

牋牋牋牋?Out on the wild old ocean

 

牋牋牋牋?O give me fishes to soothe my sorrows

牋牋牋牋?out on the deep

牋牋牋牋?O give me darkness to soothe my herring

牋牋牋牋?down in the dark of the moon

牋牋牋牋?Out on the deep, out on the deep

牋牋牋牋?Out on the wild old ocean

 

牋牋牋牋?For there's snow, lord, there's snow on the wind

牋牋牋牋?out on the deep

牋牋牋牋?Snow on the wind before morning

牋牋牋牋?down in the haul of the tide

牋牋牋牋?Out on the deep, out on the deep

牋牋牋牋?Out on the wild old ocean

 

牋牋牋牋?And there's wind, lore, there's wind before morning

牋牋牋牋?out on the deep

牋牋牋牋?Wind on the cold tide coming

牋牋牋牋?down in the haul of the tide

牋牋牋牋?Out on the deep, out on the deep

牋牋牋牋?Out on the wild old ocean

 

牋牋牋牋?O give us one more morning

牋牋牋牋?Then will we lay this season down
