Winter tried to return for a day, but failed this time. But it reminded me (of course) of a song.
One of my favorite groups of childhood was the New York duo Simon and Garfunkel. The other day, on Facebook, someone posted this video.
The Simon and Garfunkel song "Hazy Shade of Winter" was released in 1966, long before some of my blog readers were born. But its theme is eternal.
In the song, the singer first declares:
" Look around
The grass is high
The fields are ripe
It's the springtime of my life..."
|May 2016 My House|
But, dreams unrealized, he laments, later in the song:
"I look around
Leaves are brown, now
And the sky is a hazy shade of winter...
There's a patch of snow on the ground"
|January 2016 Weedsport, New York|
I wonder how the singer feels, now that he (in real life) is heading towards the winter of his life.
As I am, too.
How was your weather yesterday?
