Donovan – The Song Of Wandering Aengus

I went out to the hazel wood,
Because a fire was in my head,
And cut and peeled a hazel wand,
And hooked a berry to a thread;
And when white moths were on the wing,
And moth-like stars were flickering out,
I dropped the berry in a stream
And caught a little silver trout.

When I had laid it on the floor
I went to blow the fire a-flame,
But something rustled on the floor,
And someone called me by my name:
It had become a glimmering girl
With apple blossom in her hair
Who called me by my name and ran
And faded through the brightening air.

Though I am old with wandering
Through hollow lands and hilly lands,
I will find out where she has gone,
And kiss her lips and take her hands;
And walk among long dappled grass,
And pluck till time and times are done,
The silver apples of the moon,
The golden apples of the sun.

William Butler Yeats

Catch The Wind

Donovan – Catch The Wind

In the chilly hours and minutes
Of uncertainty, I want to be
In the warm hold of your loving mind

To feel you all around me
And to take your hand along the sand
Ah, but I may as well try and catch the wind

When sundown pales the sky
I want to hide a while behind your smile
And everywhere I’d look your eyes I’d find

For me to love you now
Would be the sweetest thing, ‚twould make me sing
Ah, but I may as well try and catch the wind

When rain has hung the leaves with tears
I want you near to kill my fears
To help me to leave all my blues behind

For standin‘ in your heart
Is where I want to be and I long to be
Ah, but I may as well try and catch the wind
Ah, but I may as well try and catch the wind
Ah, but I may as well try and catch the wind
Ah, but I may as well try and catch the wind
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Ah, but I may as well try and catch the wind
(Ah, but I may as well try)
Ah, but I may as well try and catch the wind
(I may as well try)
I may as well try and catch the wind
(I may as well try)
I may as well try and catch the wind
(I may as well try)
Don’t you know, baby, that I may as well try and catch the wind
(I may as well try)
(I may as well try)
(I may as well try)
