undefended heart

I honour your gods
I drink at your well
I bring an undefended heart to our meeting place
I have no cherished outcome
I will not negotiate by withholding
I am not subject to disappointment

Truly the most intellectual and artistic song of the collection in that the entire Odyssey of Homer has been distilled into a much more pithy and cogent work of only 3 minutes. The composer accomplishes this amazing feat by cleverly retelling the entire story from the viewpoint of Penelope and leaving out all that other junk.
Vocal: Stacey Lee Gusé; additional background vocals: Debbie Tilson; guitar: Paul Chapman; organ, arranging & sequencing: Doug Jamieson ~ written in 2003 (
2 min. excerpt)
