By the Fountain

from Animals by Ben Hermanski



A blade of streams is cutting throught the sky
Endless drops of water, particles so fine
And I wonder, will it be tonight?
Racing through the city with animals alike

And I feel them so deep
As the rain’s falling down on me

By the fountain, in the water, in a made-up estate
In an hour, I’ll be over, I must be on my way

A flock of sparrows, led there by the blind
Is sitting on the fountain, dirty from their flight
I am watching, I wonder where I’ve been
And my heart is the anchor of my sins

I am watching, I wonder where I’ve been
And my story is written on my skin
I am thinking thoughts about myself
I write them down and put them on a shelf

Ben Hermanski is an observer, a sensitive writer. A finder of melodies both engaging, catchy and familiar; a teller of stories both true and remote at the same time.

He keeps his eyes closed on stage, because these moments are for giving. To you.
