lyrics

The heaving sea
Drowns over me
The lilting swell
Rocks me well

My body turns over and over
My body learns the green underwater
She cradles me, curled like a sleeper
She quenches me, cooling my fever
Nearly consumed, I am Venus' daughter
Ocean perfumed, I am washed in saltwater

See how I shine
Drenched, deep in divine
Flame is my keeper
Eros my teacher

My body turns over and over
My body burns, lost in my lover
He cradles me, curled like a sleeper
He quenches me, cooling my fever
My body turns, over and over
My body burns, lost in my lover

about

Jess Ward Wales, UK

I come from Pembrokeshire in West Wales where I have been lucky to live all my life in a land of crashing waves, rugged cliffs, mirrored pools, twisting oaks, windswept thorn and peeping primrose.
After many years performing and creating with my guitar I have now found my dream instrument in the Celtic lever harp.
I play a Telor model, made at Telynau Teifi, The Harp Centre of Wales in Llandysul.
