April Come She Will

This is one of my favorites from Simon & Garfunkel, "April Come She Will". A short and sweet song comparing the warmth and renewal of Spring to the surprise and joy of young, First Love.

That's my interpretation anyway, what do you think?

"April come she will
When streams are ripe and swelled with rain;
May, she will stay,
Resting in my arms again.

June, she'll change her tune,
In restless walks she'll prowl the night;
July, she will fly
And give no warning to her flight.

August, die she must,
The autumn winds blow chilly and cold;
September, I'll remember
A love once new has now grown old."

Nice ballad. One this Boomer was not familiar with so thanks for sharing.

A beautiful song. I haven't ever heard it before, but I will remember it!

I actually find the song, along with most by Simon and Garfunkel, a bit sad. Hopeful, but sad.

It seems that the song is written, relationship-wise, in the September to February range.

And the singer knows that love will come again... to last a brief while until the relationship will inevitably turn sour.

And that the cycle will repeat, new love, dying love, long period of loneliness....

This is another lovely song. Too bad the video is no longer in existence.
