Winterlong

Spring snow.

I know, I know it sucks and driving in it is a pain and after all, it is APRIL.

So what do you do on a snowday? I’m inspired to write music today and I’ve researched some great songs about the seasons. Here are a few to ponder:

‘Song For A Winter’s Night’ by Gordon Lightfoot. Or ‘Winter’ by the Rolling Stones. Or ‘Summertime’ by Janis Joplin. Or ‘From the Morning’ by Nick Drake (an ode to summer). Or ‘Autmun in New York’ by Billie Holiday.

Any song titles come to mind?

Funnily enough, I can’t seem to find anything that strikes me as being very ‘springy’. Maybe that’s because, well it’s NOT springy outside!

But, in it’s own way, it is unique and special. We don’t see it very often and for most of us I guess it would nice not to see it at all! Snowfall in the spring! (that could be a song title ...)

In closing, if it’s not a song to help you through the day, here’s a little something to inspire us to trudge through the snow. It’s a line from one of my favourite poets, e.e. cummings ::

“The snow doesn’t give a soft white damn whom it touches.”

Thanks for reading, see you next time.
