?. Fog [sung text not yet checked]

The fog comes
on little cat feet.

It sits looking
over harbor and city
on silent haunches
and then moves on.

?. Lost [sung text not yet checked]

Desolate and lone
All night long on the lake
Where fog trails and mist creeps,
The whistle of a boat
Calls and cries unendingly,
Like some lost child
In tears and trouble
Hunting the harbor's breast
And the harbor's eyes.
