about

Title track of the "Hammer of Botany" EP. The song is about Arctopoides, The Sanicle Prince, the titular Footsteps of Spring. He is an invisible giant whose passing is marked only by plants that grow in patches of green with yellow flowers. The plants are said to heal the land. Where Arctopoides walks in his perpetual journey, lush floral landscapes grow where but wastelands existed before.

lyrics

Nature’s unseen behemoth
Plodding inexorable
Its invisible passing marked only
By the Footsteps of Spring

Dotting the landscape
Along coastal paths serpentine
Tiny yellow patches
Quintuple inriflorescent domes

Umbel borne flowers
Like jutting floral stars
Signaling Arctopoides’ perpetual journey
Sanicle Prince, He
With every step, heals the land
