And A River Of Green Sliding

It's Sgt. Pepper's Lonelyhearts Club Band!

The look is most definitely Pink Floyd, and a couple of their albums will be making an appearance, but as you already see, The Beatle have made their entrance into this, a grand circus, our second we should add, of British psychedelia. Our first was Layers Of The Onion, that is still going strong and is still being added to. But for now let us slip slowly backwards in time, and listen for those sounds that waft upon a summer breeze, or arrive with the first birds of spring, that make their way through the tall meadow grass by the river, a punt drifts lazily by.........Listen........Listen.......

Grantchester Meadows
(music/lyrics Roger Waters)
 

Icy wind of night, be gone.
This is not your domain.
In the sky a bird was heard to cry.
Misty morning whisperings and gentle stirring sounds
Belied a deathly silence that lay all around.
Hear the lark and harken to the barking of the dog fox gone to ground.
See the splashing of the kingfisher flashing to the water.
And a river of green is sliding unseen beneath the trees,
Laughing as it passes through the endless summer making for the sea.
In the lazy water meadow
I lay me down.
All around me,
Golden sunflakes settle on the ground,
Basking in the sunshine of a by gone afternoon,
Bringing sounds of yesterday into this city room.
Hear the lark and harken to the barking of the dog fox gone to ground.
See the splashing of the kingfisher flashing to the water.
And a river of green is sliding unseen beneath the trees,
Laughing as it passes through the endless summer making for the sea.
In the lazy water meadow
I lay me down.
All around me,
Golden sunflakes covering the ground,
Basking in the sunshine of a by gone afternoon,
Bringing sounds of yesterday into my city room.
Hear the lark and harken to the barking of the dog fox gone to ground.
See the splashing of the kingfisher flashing to the water.
And a river of green is sliding unseen beneath the trees,
Laughing as it passes through the endless summer making for the sea.

Go Bear Go!
