In “Don’t think twice, it’s alright” Bob Dylan
writes of “… your light. The light I never knowed. “
Turns out to be a rhyme, quite brilliant,
as with, “I’m on the dark side of the road.”
I wish there was one I could do or say
which, in the memory like that, would stay,
and, on a recording, now and then, play.
But that’s alright. Maybe another day.
Ain’t no use in calling out my name, babe,
when I’m gone, to learn what it was I meant.
The piper’s tune, by then, will have been played,
babe. It will be far too late to repent.
Things move on, and I’ll be long out of sight.
Not showed, yet knowed. “Don’t think twice, it’s alright.”
