Thanks & Poetry

Pin It


I didn't have time to collect any links this week. It's amazing what can get done in the few hours the kid is in school. Anyway, John is sending me Coureurs de Bois by Bruce MacDonald since I won the Canadian Book Challenge giveaway this week. No it's not in French. Thanks, John.

Today is poetry Friday and this is one I can understand. Jama Rattigan is asking people for they're favorite Bob Dylan lyrics. I find Bob hard to listen to but he's written so much you're bound to run into his lyrics somewhere. I enjoy Sheryl Crow's version of Mississippi. Here's my favorite part:

Well my ship's been split to splinters and it's sinking fast
I'm drownin' in the poison, got no future, got no past
But my heart is not weary, it's light and it's free
I've got nothin' but affection for all those who've sailed with me
