“If you think it long and mad,
the wind of banners
that passes through my life,
and you decide
to leave me at the shore
of the heart where I have roots,
that on that day,
at that hour,
I shall lift my arms
and my roots will set off
to seek another land”…

(Pablo Neruda, If You Forget Me)

Tell me, what is the present hour ?
‘A green and flowery spray
Where a young bird sits gathering its power
To mount and fly away.’

And we’ll dream, won’t we?
Of Montague Terrace in blue
All in blue…”

Blowing by…



…”That’s what I want!
A new shot at life!
But my coat’s too thin, my feet won’t fly
And I watch the wind and I see another dream
Blowing by…”
