Yesterday a child came out to wonder
Caught a dragonfly inside a jar
Fearful when the sky was full of thunder
And tearful at the falling of a star

  • this is such an interesting song that is about life and growing up. Sometimes it does feel just as fast as she makes it haha!
  • i've never cared much for the original version of this but the recording with the orchestra on "travelogue" finally allowed me to love it. like both sides now, it's the kind of song that really works better with a voice of experience behind it.
  • our beloved Joni
  • "Though his dreams have lost some grandeur coming true, there'll be new dreams, maybe better dreams and plenty" The travelogue version is truly beautiful
  • Travelogue version is so beautiful... :)
  • haunting and so beautiful
  • just true
  • Joni, what an artist. Takes me back, and makes me feel good.
  • i imagine when i have kids i'll understand this a bit better, cuz i am the circle of my parents, as are all kids...all life is a cyclce, stars, birds, planets, everything....a giant circle or cycle of enegry....wonderful song. much love.
