GUEST,Lindsay Songs about glass? (39) RE: Songs about glass? 22 Aug 04

Donovan's "Jersey Thursday"

In a tiny piece of coloured glass
My love was born
And reds and golds and yellows
Were the colours in the dawn
Night put on its purple cloak
Of velvet to the sky
And the gulls were wheeling, spinning,
On Jersey Thursday.

(I first heard this song in the 60s - we considered that the "tiny piece of coloured glass" was a test-tube, although the first "Test Tube Baby" had yet to be born)
