And The Grass Won't Pay No Mind ...



“Listen easy, you can hear God calling
Walking barefoot by the stream …
And the time will be our time
And the grass won’t pay no mind …

The moment we’re living is now
Now now now now now now now…

And the time will be our time
And the grass won’t pay no mind
No the grass won’t pay no mind.”

~ “And The Grass Won’t Pay No Mind”
~ Words & Music by Neil Diamond
~ recorded by the great Elvis Presley
      ~ 1969

And the grass won’t pay no mind on a sweet and warm late spring evening as the light of sunset filters through the lush, tall grass with a tranquil hush in early June at Trexler Memorial Park, Allentown, Pennsylvania.

Chickadee's Winter Reverie ...



“Our love is a dream, but in my reverie
I can see that this love was meant for me …

My dreams are as worthless as tin to me
Without you, life will never begin to be
So love me as I love you in my reverie
Make my dreams a reality, let’s dispense with formality
Come to me in my reverie …”
               ~ “My Reverie”
      ~ 1938 popular song, lyrics by Larry Clinton, melody based on 1890 piano piece “Reverie” by French classical composer Claude Debussy
        ~ recorded by artists including Bing Crosby, Glenn Miller, Eddie Duchin, Tony Bennett, Sarah Vaughn & Ella Fitzgerald

Sweet Black-capped Chickadee seems to be in its own winter reverie on a rare warm February day at Trexler Memorial Park, Allentown, Pennsylvania.

This North American songbird is the symbol of Massachusetts, Maine and New Brunswick, Canada.
