24APR2018 – Quote of the Day

Early to mid-career Jethro Tull was a musical favorite of mine.  But in 1979 I listened to Stormwatch and declared the end of my interest in their music.

The leaded window opened

to move the dancing candle flame.

And the first moths of summer

suicidal came

to join in the worship

of the light that never dies

in a moment’s reflection

of two moths spinning in her eyes.


Moths (from the album Heavy Horses)
