Saturday Sun

came early one morning

Saturday sun came early one morning
In a sky so clear and blue
Saturday sun came without warning
So no-one knew what to do.

Saturday sun brought people and faces
That didn't seem much in their day
But when I remember those people and places
They were really too good in their way.

In their way
In their way
Saturday sun won't come and see me today.

Think about stories with reason and rhyme
Circling through your brain.
And think about people in their season and time
Returning again and again

And again
And again
And Saturday's sun has turned to Sunday's rain.

So Sunday sat in the Saturday sun
And wept for a day gone by.

- N Drake


  1. Listening to Nick Drake on a Saturday morning eh?...... hmmm.

  2. There's something 80's of those colors, Miami Viceish if you will. Can't say nuthin bout the song, can't be wiewed due copyright issues in my location.

    Nice new profile pic, your 3. eye is finaly working?

  3. It bloody well better not rain on Sunday.......I've seen enough of it for one week thanks! Nice words; nicer picture! Hope you are having a good week end!

  4. Yeah, I should stick to up beat songsters like Leonard Cohen, eh Neil? :-P

    Miami Vice??!!! Good lord, prkl... it's the anti-Miami Vice! It's a sweet little place on a river in England... sleepy, salty and muddy. Although there is a thong wearer... he's about 90 and wonders the walking trails in his flesh coloured speedo.

    Saturday was a write-off but so far, Sunday's been very nice.

  5. I remember this photo of Nick
    wandering around looking awkward
    by the river
    very much like this
    only black and white
    but now it´s coloured
    and Nick is gone
    long gone
    leaving only an impression
    got to get pink pink moon
    even though this is pink pink sun
