The rain-soup pan


“Beautiful Soup, so rich and green,
Waiting in a hot tureen!
Who for such dainties would not stoop?
Soup of the evening, beautiful Soup!
Beautiful Soup!
Beautiful Soup!
Soup of the evening,
Beautiful, beautiful Soup!”

(L. Carroll in Alice’s adventures in Wonderland)

Is this Caracas?


“Frankie pulled out a pistol.
Pulled out a forty-four.
Gun went off a rootie-toot-toot
And Albert fell on the floor.
He was her man but he done her wrong.”

(Bob Dylan in Frankie&Albert)

What about “halfland”?


“At times I think there are no words
But these to tell what’s true
And there are no truths outside the Gates of Eden”

(Bob Dylan in Gates of Eden)

In the distance the children are playing


“Let us go dance and play,

And look for violets in the lane,
And ramble far away
To gather primroses,
That in the woodland grow,
And hunt for oxslips, or if yet
The blades of blue bells show …”

(R.S. Bridges in A child’s hymn)

Warm welcome way-in


”Try imagining a place where it’s always safe and warm

“Come in,” she said, “I’ll give you shelter from the storm””

(Bob Dylan in Shelter from the storm)
