Nick Drake: Place to Be

From Allen Ginsberg's "Kaddish, Part I":

And how Death is that remedy all singers dream of, sing, remember,
Prophesy as in the Hebrew Anthem, or the Buddhist Book of An-
swers - and my own imagination of a withered leaf - at dawn -

Dreaming back thru life - Your time, and mine accelerating toward Apocalypse,

The final moment - the flower burning in the Day - and what comes after...

Thank you for stopping by, via the Akkadian scribe. I was listening to the song on my playlist yesterday and was struck by this lyric And I was green, greener than the hill. Wondered if there were a video I could post, and Voila!

Mea culpa: That last comment was meant for Candace. Again, Candace, thanks for dropping in. A long flight, from Athens, GA to Hong Kong and all the way back to Tres Leches...
