“My father lies black and hushed
Beneath white hospital sheets
He collapsed at work
His iron left him
Slow and quiet he sank.”

“After a while we took in the clothes
Nobody said very much
Just some old wild shirts and a couple pairs of pants
Which nobody really wanted to touch ….”

(Bob Dylan in Clothes Line Saga)

“As the Wind, and as the Wind,
In a corner of the way,
Goes stepping, stands twirling,
Invisibly, comes whirling,
Bows before, and skips behind,
In a grave, an endless play —

So my Heart, and so my Heart,
Following where your feet have gone,
Stirs dust of old dreams there;
He turns a toe; he gleams there,
Treading you a dance apart.
But you see not. You pass on.” 

(R. Brooke in The Dance)
Grand-Rechain (B)

“Far away where the soft winds blow
Far away from it all
There is a place you go
Where teardrops fall.”

(Bob Dylan in Where teardrops fall)

Cold feet

“When Wintertime comes
With its snow and sleet
And me with hunger
And cold feet
Who says “Here’s two bits, go and eat”?
Nobody”

(Johnny Cash in Nobody)
