“Port Meadow” is a song which draws upon experiences that I have had in the meadow of the same name. Port Meadow is a short walk away from the buildings which comprise Oxford University—so close, and yet so far beyond. In the brief period of time in which I studied there, the meadow was a place in which shyness, careful observation and quiet appreciation were possible.


The meadow stretched out to the sky
on that cool late summer day
and I could not help but wonder why
we chose to go this way

You and I were simply shy,
wishing we were brave
And the meadow stretched out to the sky,
and I hoped that we were safe (x2)

Beyond books and stone walls
The meadow stays despite it all (x2)

The meadow stays to enthrall

This vast and open place we've found
that needed us to try
To listen to the softest sound
and the meadow stretched out to the sky
