GOSSAMER (Music by Joan Baez / Lyrics by Nina Duscheck) - 1967 When I was young then all my boughs were thickly hung with glittering hopes. But one by one they've blown away and only one remains today. It flutters out upon the air, one hope all pinned on gossamer. What are all lives but gossamer in one lacy cobweb crossed? Yet strand by strand we tear at it until the pattern's lost. And one by one hopes blow away till only one remains today. I hope the forest will return to climb the mist-hung morning slopes. Where falling leaves deep-banked in fern may meet the water ouzel's hopes. But one by one they've blown away and only one remains today. And when the condor opens flight on crystal air not cracked or stained by any fallen angel's flight, these glittering hopes may be regained. When I was young then all my boughs were thickly hung with glittering hopes. But one by one they've blown away and only one remains today. It flutters out upon the air, one hope all pinned on gossamer. (Contributed by Andy & Mogg - January 2003)
