private rodin

private - unmixed / unmastered / unreleased

In a block of stone

A supple naked form

A pulse and memory

Wind and water worn 

A spark before the fire

A breath to get it higher

A fire for the soul

Before the work is born 

Lyrics / music / recording by Rhys Tivey

Auguste Rodin: The artist must create a spark before he can make a fire and before art is born, the artist must be ready to be consumed by the fire of his own creation.”
