I love this song. I wrote it late on a Saturday afternoon with an amazing golden light blazing thru the window falling on my piano. About an hour after I finished this, right at sunset, I wrote Gold Light, another of my favorites. This version uses a 9-bar A section, a 9-bar B section, returning to the A section (ABA form). If you repeat the A section twice, the following lyric can be sung with the tune.

Earthly beauty
Always escapes us
flies to blue sky
vanishes out in the night.

Over green earth
As the sun sets
under star light
Singing her song in the night

(singer silent during B section, listening to song)

Earthly beauty
Always escapes us
flies to blue sky
vanishes out in the night

Song was composed in July of 1981.
