Just where it know lies I can no longer say
I found it on a cold and November day
In the roots of a sycamore tree where it had hid so long
In a box made out of myrtle lay the bone of song

The bone of song was a jawbone old and bruised
and worn out in the service of the muse
and along its sides and teeth were written words
I ran my palm along them and I heard

main riff
I am the only unquiet ghost that does not seek rest

the words on the bone of song were close and small
and though their tongues dead I found I knew them all
in the hieroglyphs of quills and quatrain lines
Osiris--the fall of Troy--Auld Land Syne

then I saw on a white space that was left
a blessing written older than the rest
it said leave me here I care not for wealth of fame
I'll remember your song--but I'll forget your name

the words that I sang blew off like the leaves in the wind
and perched like birds in the branches before landing on the bone again

then the bone was quiet it said no more to me
so I wrapped it in the ribbons of a sycamore tree
and as night had come I turned around and headed home
with a lightness in my step and a song in my bones

lucky are you who finds me in the wilderness
I am the only unquiet ghost that does not seek rest
