The Human Seasons
Four Seasons fill the measure of the year;
There are four seasons in the mind of man:
He has his lusty Spring, when fancy clear
Takes in all beauty with an easy span:
He has his Summer, when luxuriously
Spring’s honied cud of youthful thought he loves
To ruminate, and by such dreaming high
Is nearest unto heaven: quiet coves
His soul has in its Autumn, when his wings
He furleth close; contented so to look
On mists in idleness–to let fair things
Pass by unheeded as a threshold brook.
He has his Winter too of pale misfeature,
Or else he would forego his mortal nature.
It is salutary to train oneself to be no more affected by censure than by praise.
– William Somerset Maugham (1874-1965) English Novelist, Playwright
A big thank-you to my buddy, Melanie Ryan who sent me a full recording of this concert that she attended in NYC’s Madison Square Garden of Roger Waters’ Another Brick In The Wall concert on 10/5/2010.
