For Emily, Whenever I May Find Her

ŠPaul Simon, released on Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme (Simon and Garfunkel) 1966


What I dream I had:

Pressed in organdy;

Clothed in crinoline of smoky Burgundy;

Softer than the rain.

I wandered empty streets

Down past the shop displays.

I heard cathedral bells

Tripping down the alley ways,

As I walked on.


And when you ran to me

Your cheeks flushed with the night.

We walked on frosted fields of juniper and lamplight,

I held your hand.

And when I awoke and felt you warm and near,

I kissed your honey hair with my grateful tears.

Oh I love you, girl.

Oh, I love you.
