a pretty picture and some words to match

And I
want to walk with you,
on a cloudy day.
In fields where the yellow grass grows knee-high …

My early 20s crush on Billy Bragg made me think that songwriters are today's poets - instead of getting their patronage from rich aristocrats, they get it from record companies and listeners, like us.
Lovely picture, as ever - Yadza!

I'm currently LOVING the lyrics by Powderfinger's Bernard Fanning on his album Tea and Sympathy. Divine.

I have a cd I made of "girl music."
There is some Nora on it...

We used that song at our wedding for our first dance as a married couple. Beautiful picture...you've brought back lots of lovely memories. Thanks!

i totally believe that some songwriters are poets who just happen to be talented enough to put their poems to music.

Ditto on the other comments. A school I taught at had a poet in residence one year and her first assigment to the kids was to bring in a song they liked.

i think music is the true poetry of the 20th and 21st century. words and sounds that can stir the soul. nice picture, btw.

I often browse through my CD rack and pick a couple of CDs and read the lyrics to inspire myself.

I love Norah Jones. I went to her concert last year.

I just happened upon your blog...let me see now, how DID that happen? Oh yes, I was thinking of that song by Norah Jones..no, wait, before that, I was writing to my best friend, trying to describe a scene in my mind of the two of us sitting together on a porch swing, and what the view might look like, and I thought of that song and those lyrics and I wondered what views might come up if I googled "fields of yellow grass"... :-) and through my online wanderings, I found your blog - what a feast for the senses! Thank you!
