These New Things

Why shouldn’t I possess a private eagerness,
an anticipation all of my own,
Such that it crams every corner of my soul.

And I had sworn I would never again open the door
Of my senses to any outward appeal.

But I have not kept that vow
and this dismays me.

Even though I again have tasted
The tangible loveliness of life,
Seen colours as pristine as the
beginning of life and love.

Passion or compassion? I can’t tell.
My heart and soul rushed to take it in.
But you have given me a gift,
And in that giving you have honoured me.

I have found the grace, the sense of worth.
And these new things have wiped away the hurt.

Andrew Brennan 1994-1999

Winter by The Rolling Stones

Winter

Winter

And it’s sure been a cold, cold winter
And the wind ain’t been blowin’ from the south
It’s sure been a cold, cold winter
And the light of love is all burned out

It sure been a hard, hard winter
My feet been draggin’ ‘cross the ground
And I hope it’s gonna be a long, hot summer
And the light of love will be burnin’ bright

And I wish I’d been out in California
When the lights on all the Christmas trees went out
But I been burnin’ my bell, book and candle
And the restoration plays have all gone ’round

It sure been a cold, cold winter
My feet been draggin’ ‘cross the ground
And the fields has all been brown and fallow
And the springtime take a long way around

Yeah, and I wish I’d been out in Stony Canyon
When the lights on all the Christmas trees went out
But I been burnin’ my bell, book and candle
And the restoration plays have all gone ’round

Sometimes I think about you, baby
Sometimes I cry about you
Lord well well well

Sometimes I wanna wrap my coat around you
Sometimes I wanna keep you warm
Sometimes I wanna wrap my coat around you
Sometimes I wanna burn a candle for you

Jagger/Richards – Goat’s Head Soup
