Guest Blog: Fathers of Western Thought

Fathers of Western Thought continue their guest blog for the James Joyce Centre, with songs and lyrics based on A Portrait of an Artist as a Young Man. This song ‘A Day Of Dappled Seaborne Clouds’ is based on the fourth chapter of the novel.

‘A Day of Dappled Seaborne Clouds’


You stood before me in midstream
Alone and still
Gazing out, out at sea.

You watch me standing on the beach
Alone and still
Gazing out, out at me.

I closed my eyes and went to sleep
My eyelids trembled
And I, I could see.

You stood before me in a dream
When I woke up I knew
That I, I was free.
