The lyrics of this song, by a Lesotho poet, overflow with images of earth, sea, sky, clouds, and especially powerful is the metaphor of the setting sun as a nesting bird, which the narrator imagines finding after flying far enough to see where the sun sets. The music wings us on this long, strange journey of discovery, beginning in a slow and dignified way and gathering speed and excitement as it goes along.
