The title comes from an Ultravox 'Lament' lyric ........a favourite song that played it's part in triggering this painting. The standing stones are the Ring of Brodgar, Orkney. The merlin represents a very special spirit moving on to his next journey up there amongst the stars. The symbolic dolphin and youngling are left to continue their journey without him.....'softly, sighing lament'...
