“We’ll meet another day, another time
It ain’t the leavin’
That’s a-grievin’ me
But my true love who’s bound to stay behind”
(Bob Dylan in Farewell)
“Now I missed my bus, and I know that I’m late.
I gotta do something that I know I’ma hate.
I gotta walk to work, 15 blocks.
Just start it, I already got a hole in my socks.”
(Raven-Symone in Double Dutch bus)
“For as long as love will last
Beyond here lies nothin’
But the mountains of the past.”
(Bob Dylan in Beyond here lies nothing)
“Lights are burning
In quiet rooms
Where lives go on
The quiet lives
That follow us—
These lives we lead
But do not own—”
(D. Justice in Bus stop)
Les Avins (B)
“The end of the year fell chilly
Between a moon and a moon;
Thorough the twilight shrilly
The bells rang, ringing no tune.
The windows stained with story,
The walls with miracle scored,
Were full of weeping and laughter
And song and saying good-bye.”
(A.E. Housman in New Year’s Eve)
