“Oh the time will come up
When the winds will stop
And the breeze will cease to be breathin’
Like the stillness in the wind
’Fore the hurricane begins
The hour when the ship comes in”
(Bob Dylan in When the ship comes in)
“The grass is thick and cool, it lets us lie.
Kissed upon either cheek and either eye,
I turn to thee as some green afternoon
Turns toward sunset, and is loth to die;
Ah God, ah God, that day should be so soon.”
(A. Ch. Swinburne in In the orchard)
(Jimi Hendrix in Red house)
“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)
