Still in Love

Sent more poems from the collection to Vassar College where I did something considered remarkable, gave the Elizabeth Bishop Lecture a few years ago, and I built a website for this visit, “The MidHudson Taffy Company” 

 

When I returned home, I converted the entire lecture into sound sculpture which may be heard here 

 

and here.

 

I was delighted by every aspect of that happening, that event.  Piughkeepsie will never be the same.

Two album covers for the sound sculpture

 

and my Thing even has a quote pin this website; I put it there, before Mr. Holman and I became involved.  I used to tease him about visiting the  the Taffy website, and his quote is on this page of the Taffy website 

 

My son was there and everything, so good for him to see his mama in this  context: ANSTED AND THYLIAS READING IN CHCAGO

and this is the quote I put there not realizing that he, Mr. Bob Holman, and I would become  involved.  He had a good time laughing at me, with good reason!

 

“At last! A dictionary for people who are words!  From the eight pages that define “A” (the fifth most commonly used word in English) (“A never looks back”) to the concluding two pages of “Wrong” (“Two wrongs only make a wrong wronger.”), what we have here is a smorgasbord of sentience, a collision of serendipity and scholarship. This is a book at play in the fields of meaning, a sixpack (Thylias Moss) ofquipus (Arthur Sze), a dehiscence (Forrest Gander) of florere (Vincent Katz), I (Cynthia Gaver) hope (John Rodriguez) as (we like it) (Brenda Hillman). We like it! When More’s Utopia is realized, One Word will be the vocabulary list for the SATs. (Except: there will be no SATs!)”

Bob Holman

when I was begging him to visit this site,, he just looked at me, laughed and said,

“Mz. Moss, I know that site very well, and sometimes, I eat it with a fork!”

I love this man with all my heart! 

 

“AS”: Stevie Wonder on youtube here:

I will Love him Always! the lyrics:

 

Genius lyrics, Stevie Wonder, “As”:

your [Verse 1]

As around the sun the earth knows she’s revolving 

And the rosebuds know to bloom in early  May

Just as hate knows love’s the cure

You can rest your mind assured 

That I’ll be loving you always.
As now can’t reveal the mystery of tomorrow
But in passing will grow older every day

Just as all is born is new
Do know what I say is true
That I’ll be loving you always

[Refrain]

Until    the rainbow burns the starts out in the sky (Always)

Until the ocean covers every mountain high (Always)

Until the dolphin flies and parrots live at sea (Always)

Until we dream of life and life becomes a dream

[Verse 2]
Did you know that true love asks for nothing
Her acceptance is the way we pay
Did you know that life has given love a guarantee
To last through forever and another day

Just as time knew to move on since the beginning

And the seasons know exactly who to change 
Just as kindness knows no shame
Know through all your joy and pain
That I’ll be loving you always

Until the dolphin flies and parrots live at sea (Always)

Until we dream of life and life becomes a dream-Um (Always)

Until the day is night and night becomes the day (Always)

Until the trees and seas just up and fly away (Always)

Until the day that 8 times 8 times 8 is 4

Until the day that is the day that are no more

Until the day he earth starts turning right to left (Always )

Until the earth just for the sun denies itself

Until dear Mother Nature says her work is through

Until the day that you are me and I am you

Until the rainbow burns the stars out in the sky

Until the ocean covers every mountain high

Until the dolphin flies and parrots live at sea

Until we dream of life and life becomes a dream

Until the day is night and night becomes the day

Until the trees and seas just up and fly away

Until the day that 8 times 8 times 8 is 4

Until the day that is the day that are no more

Until the day the earth starts turning right to left

Until the earth just for the sun denies itself

Until dear Mother Nature says her work is through

Until the day that you are me and I am you
