Didn't I see this during the "Summer of Love" projected above the stage at the Fillmore? :D

you hold my heart with this one, mary!

Black-eyed Susan (Laura Nyro)

Lazy flower, my, you've grown so tall./ I have lost and loved him, you have seen it all.

Lazy Susan, lazy through, hasn't got a think to do./ Oh, but to sit there and light up the hillside,/ sun-fried, black-eyed Sue.

Lazy Susan, lazy through,/ all the hills in love with you,/ Courted and cradled by Heaven and hillside, sun-fried,/ black-eyed Sue, black-eyed Sue, black-eyed.

Black-eyed Sue, how happy you must be./ Once, I too had someone loving me.

Johnny, Johnny, warm and true,/ that's how I remember you,/ this morning, just as I found you: up there on the hillside/

with sun-fried, black-eyed lazy Susan, Susan.

:>>)) heard this song in my head AT ONCE! do you know it? xoxoxoxoxoox

I was there, Mick, but I was one of those who "don't remember" (proving I was really there, LOL!)

I think there was soemthing like that, echoed later by Pink Floyd and Rat Dog and . . .

Thanks, Laura. I thought at first it was one of your poems, very lovely.

I've been working on my novel and am way behind on art, blogging, commenting etc. So sorry.
