Pussy Willow

Pussy Willow

(Performed by Jethro Tull)

In the half-tone light of a young morning
she sighs and shifts on the pillow.
And across her face dancing, the first shadows fly
to kiss the Pussy Willow.

In her fairy-tale world she's a lost soul singing
in a sad voice nobody hears.
She waits in her castle of make-believing
for her white knight to appear.

Pusy Willow --- down fur-lined avenue
brushing the sleep from her young woman eyes.
Runs for the train --- see, eight o'clock's coming
cutting dreams down to size again.

Pussy Willow --- down fur-lined avenue
brushing the sleep from her young woman eyes.
Runs from the train. Hear her typewriter humming
cutting dreams down to size again.

She longs for the East and a pale dress flowing
an apartment in old Mayfair.
Or to fish the Spey, spinning the first run of Spring
or to die for a cause somewhere.

Pussy Willow --- down fur-lined avenue
brushing the sleep from her young woman eyes.
Runs from the train. Hear her typewriter humming
cutting dreams down to size again.

Stunning close-up, I can see the softness! Great song too, definitely some gritty truth in those lyrics ;o)

The signs of spring, not here yet. we will not see this for at least two more months V

Exceptionally sharp and lovely bokeh! Amazing to think that Ian Anderson (Jethro Tull front man) has short hair and looks quite middles class now - he's just been given an MBE by the queen in the New Year's honours list. He's a photography nut and collects old Leica cameras. He'd probably love your photo Jola!! Vote
