Omschrijving

Our Friends Herein Cracked Mary became Crazy Jane; O'Roughley now Old Tom. Both are sacred, both profane, and In the end the same. In travail and arrogance, In love and love's deceit, All innocents grow old. A tender heart, The priest Jane thought a fool, Merely notes on a great Symphonic scale. A cradling Goddess, And dancing God, As in a Grecian cave, Cast shadows upon an Irish stage. O friends false and true Sing on, sing on! Singing forever These songs from a mountain tomb.

(3:10) This seventh collection in my W B Yeats series marks a literary and musical first. In 1931 W B Yeats finished and in the next year published his WORDS FOR MUSIC PERHAPS. Though some of the twenty-five poems of this volume have been set to music by musicians as well-known as Van Morrison and Mike Scott, this collection is the first to present these words in the entirety of the sequence as Yeats, perhaps, had hoped. Careful listeners and/or fans of W B Yeats may be reminded that these songs present a poetic experience that is designed to be balanced. Yeats's primary female character here is Crazy Jane who begins the CD with her hard won insights into life, love, afterlife, and Church. Tom the Lunatic ends the collection with his insights and joy. In between Yeats keeps the balance between genders and explores any number of his usual themes. May you find more than just a catchy tune here!

Broth in the Pot There's broth in the pot for you, old man, There's broth in the pot for you, old man, There's cabbage for me And broth for you, And beef for Jack the journeyman. I wish you were dead, my gay old man, I wish you were dead my gay old man, I wish you were dead And a stone at your head, So as I'd marry poor Jack the journeyman. 2. Crazy Jane and the Bishop Bring me to the blasted oak That I, midnight upon the stroke, (All find safety in the tomb.) May call down curses on his head Because of my dear Jack that's dead. Coxcomb was the least he said: The solid man and the coxcomb. Nor was he Bishop when his ban Banished Jack the Journeyman, (All find safety in the tomb.) Nor so much as parish priest, Yet he, an old book in his fist, Cried that we lived like beast and beast: The solid man and the coxcomb. The Bishop has a skin, God knows, Wrinkled like the foot of a goose, (All find safety in the tomb.) Nor can he hide in holy black The heron's hunch upon his back, But a birch-tree stood my Jack: The solid man and the coxcomb. Jack had my virginity, And bids me to the oak, for he (All find safety in the tomb.) Wanders out into the night And there is shelter under it, But should that other come, I spit: The solid man and the coxcomb. 3. Crazy Jane Reproved I care not what the sailors say: All those dreadful thunder-stones, All that storm that blots the day Can but show that Heaven yawns; Great Europa played the fool That changed a lover for a bull. Fol de rol, fol de rol. To round that shell's elaborate whorl, Adorning every secret track With the delicate mother-of-pearl, Made the joints of Heaven crack: So never hang your heart upon A roaring, ranting journeyman. Fol de rol, fol de rol. 4. Crazy Jane on the Day of Judgment 'Love is all / Unsatisfied That can not take the whole / Body and soul'; And that is what Jane said. 'Take the sour / If you take me, I can scoff and lour / And scold for an hour.' 'That's certainly the case,' said he. 'Naked I lay / The grass is my bed; Naked and hidden away, / That black day'; And that is what Jane said. 'What can be shown? / What true love be? All could be known or shown / If Time were but gone.' 'That's certainly the case,' said he. 5. Crazy Jane and Jack the Journeyman I know, although when looks meet I tremble to the bone, The more I leave the door unlatched The sooner love is gone, For love is but a skein unwound Between the dark and dawn. A lonely ghost the ghost is That to God shall come; I -- love's skein upon the ground, My body in the tomb -- Shall leap into the light lost In my mother's womb. But were I left to lie alone In an empty bed, The skein so bound us ghost to ghost When he turned his head Passing on the road that night, Mine would walk being dead. 6. Crazy Jane on God That lover of a night / Came when he would, Went in the dawning light / Whether I would or no; Men come, men go: All things remain in God. Banners choke the sky; / Men-at-arms tread; Armoured horses neigh / Where the great battle was In the narrow pass: All things remain in God . Before their eyes a house / That from childhood stood Uninhabited, ruinous, / Suddenly lit up From door to top: All things remain in God. I had wild Jack for a lover; / Though like a road That men pass over / My body makes no moan But sings on: All things remain in God. 7. Crazy Jane Talks with the Bishop I met the bishop on the road / And much said he and I. 'Those breasts are flat and fallen now Those veins must soon be dry; Live in a heavenly mansion, not in some foul sty. 'Fair and foul are near of kin, / And fair needs foul,' I cried. 'My friends are gone, but that's a truth / Nor grave nor bed denied, Learned in bodily lowliness / And in the heart's pride. 'A woman can be proud and stiff / When on love intent; But Love has pitched his mansion in / The place of excrement: For nothing can be sole or whole / That has not been rent.' 8. Crazy Jane Grown Old Looks at the Dancers I found that ivory image there / Dancing with her chosen youth, But when he wound her coal-black hair As though to strangle her, no scream Or bodily movement did I dare, / Eyes under eyelids did so gleam: Love is like the lion's tooth. When she, and though some said she played I said that she had danced heart's truth, Drew a knife to strike him dead, I could but leave him to his fate; For, no matter what is said, / They had all that had their hate: Love is like the lion's tooth. Did he die or did she die? / Seemed to die or died they both? God be with the times when I / Cared not a thraneen for what chanced So that I had the limbs to try / Such a dance as there was danced --
