"In the misty crystal glitter of that wild and windward spray..."

Poetry as good as any. Cheers, Woody.

But on Friday, the Nobel Foundation said Dylan had called Sara Danius, Permanent Secretary of the Swedish Academy, telling her: "The news about the Nobel Prize left me speechless. I appreciate the honour so much."
Although the statement said it was unclear if Dylan would attend the prize-giving banquet in Stockholm, the UK's Daily Telegraph quoted him as saying: "Absolutely. If it's at all possible."
In an interview with the paper he described the prize as "amazing, incredible".
"It's hard to believe. Whoever dreams about something like that?" the paper quoted him as saying.

For such a literary giant he appears to have a rather strange understanding of "speechless." 😂
