A Pitcher of Summer
Kayo Dot Lyrics

One morning, before the leaves began changing
I caught a piece of summer and poured it into a pitcher;

This I placed in the cellar on a shelf collecting dust .
Autumn, then winter, rose up from the sea, and my
Garden was a garden filled with unbroken snow.

No flower strained its face to the ice giants' whisper,
No life coloured the vision of a newborn Spring babe.
My cellar-water dripping into a pail

And I lifted my piece of summer
Like a piece of memory or a dream

Like these, caught on film
And carried it to the garden floes,
The wind turning drifting stars to madness.

Poured forth gracefully, this theric tincture
Lifts winter's coat-of-arms with coaxing aromas and electricity.
Used with vigilance, a Pitcher of Summer stirs a memory into swooning,
And bravely, the flowers of the past will stretch their limbs into the sky
While snow falls quietly all around.

Great stuff KAYO DOT and MOTW RULE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


I don't mean to diss on this band, but I love the album soooo much and this doesn't even come close.... The performance is what you'd expect from a cover band and not the actual band. So I guess that if anyone comes across this live video that doesn't know the album, DON'T judge the music from this performance.

Austin Jennings

It would be pretty hard to play this kinda music while going nuts, to be fair.

Dudley Powell

Molly Ringmod

Ambiguous Dust

@MikeoWar The performance sounds good to me, I think your confusing the quality of their live performance with the quality of the video.
