The Summer Knows




The summer smiles

The summer knows

And unashamed

She sheds her clothes

The summer smoothes

The restless sky

And lovingly

She warms the sand

On which you lie

The summer knows

The summer's wise

She sees the doubts

Within your eyes

And so she takes

Her Summertime

Tells the moon to wait

And the sun to linger

Twist the world

Round her summer finger

Lets you see

The wonder of it all

And if you've learned

Your lesson well

There's little more

For her to tell

One last caress

It's time to dress

For fall...

 "The Summer Knows"

Marilyn and Alan Bergman

Dylan Now

I’ve been saying for years that I don’t want to see him now in concert, on his never-ending tour. When I listen to him, which I do frequently, I want my mental image to be of when I saw him at Newport and elsewhere, both pre- and post-electric, in the 1960s and 1970s. 

But reading through this playlist has caused me to reconsider that decision.

Maybe one more cup of coffee before I go.
