The Audacity of Grunge~Words & Music by Kurt Cobain

The audacity of Kurt to soothe us with his misery
comfort us with his self disgust 
and embrace us in his fear and pain 

Welcome to Nirvana

When You Are Old by William Butler Yeats ~24 Hour Love Poem Marathon on Xanaland

When you are old and grey and full of sleep
And nodding by the fire, take down this book 
And slowly read, and dream of the soft look
Your eyes had once, and of their shadows deep

How many loved your moments of glad grace
And loved your beauty with love~false or true 
But one man loved the pilgrim soul in you
And loved the sorrows of your changing face

And bending down beside the glowing bars
Murmur, a little sadly-how love fled
And paced upon the mountain overhead
And his face amid a crowd of stars
