Thread Name: the gay and the grinding
Subject: RE: the gay and the grinding
Martin Carthy writes in Life and Limb sleeve notes: "a bow is the bend in a river". So, we have two fine possibilities for bow, a bight or a bridge. Two ideas also for "gay and grinding", the beauty and the power of the river, or the opposition of happiness and misery, but I think that we should dig more about this expression. Thank you all very much. R
