From Audubon: A Vision

VII. Tell Me A Story


Long ago, in Kentucky, I, a boy, stood
By a dirt road, in the first dark, and heard
The great geese hoot northward.

I could not see them, there being no moon
And the stars sparse. I heard them.

I did not know what was happening in my heart.

It was the season before elderberry blooms,
Therefore they were going north.

The sound was passing northward.


Tell me a story.

In this century, and moment, of mania,
Tell me a story.

Make it a story of great distances, and starlight.

The name of the story will be Time,
But you must not pronounce its name.

Tell me a story of deep delight.

-Robert Penn Warren

Del Shannon: Runaway

Thanks for the link. I don't think I can separate that song from Mr. Milch's fanciful connection to it. Very amusing. As good a soundtrack for a BJ as any, though I'm partial to 'Under my Thumb.'

Paul said...

I know! Hilarious.

And so what was fanciful again has become imaginative. Now if only Coleridge had a girl named YumYum around..
