Send Ringtones to Cell

I awoke today and found the frost perched on the town
It hovered in a frozen sky then it gobbled summer down
When the sun turns traitor cold
And all the trees are shivering in a naked row

    I get the urge for going... ...when summertime is falling down.

    This is my theme song for the last 12 years of my life. Classic, beautiful poet Joni.

    "When the sun turns traitor cold and all the trees are shivering in a naked row" That's such a beautiful line.

    One of the most beautiful lyricists of our time.....her music is poetry - and songs of the Soul.

    This takes me back to the era--so startling to realize the heyday was...40 years ago. OMG. I don't feel old, I feel...preserved.
