Intermezzo #183

People hurry by so quickly.
Don’t they hear the melodies.
In the chiming and the clicking.
And the laughing harmonies.

Songs to aging children come.
Aging children, I am one.

Some come dark and strange like dying.
Crows and ravens whistling.
Lines of weeping, strings of crying.
So much said in listening.

Songs to Aging Children Come
Joni Mitchell (1969), Clouds

Intermezzo #182

I’m not content to be with you in the daytime.
Girl I want to be with you all of the time.
The only time I feel alright is by your side.
Girl I want to be with you all of the time.
All day and all of the night.
All day and all of the night.
All day and all of the night.

All Day And All Of The Night
The Kinks (1964)

Intermezzo #180

A candy-colored clown they call the sandman.
Tiptoes to my room every night.
Just to sprinkle star dust and to whisper.
“Go to sleep, everything is alright”.

I close my eyes, then I drift away.
Into the magic night, I softly say.
A silent prayer like dreamers do.
Then I fall asleep to dream my dreams of you.

In dreams I walk with you.
In dreams I talk to you.
In dreams you’re mine all the time.
We’re together in dreams, in dreams.

In Dreams
