Malvina Reynolds: Song Lyrics and Poems  


Notes: by Malvina Reynolds; copyright 1967 by the author. From page 86 of the collection "Inscriptions on a Ginger Jar," printed in the songbook The Muse of Parker Street.

Is there a pathway in my head
Where, if I'd follow through,
I'd find a sonnet or a song
Good enough for you?

Is there a road I used to go
Where, if I walked today,
I'd find a line of melody
I careless threw away?
