Most Influential Failure in My Lifetime

Ode to Nick Drake 1948-1974

A breath
One leaf left
Short as a cigarette puff
Time has told me
Day is done
For the poor boy.

Drift away
Like a cloud across
Saturday’s sun.
Life was brief
For the man in a shed.

His music is
Why did it play too late?
As if a chime
On a city clock.

By depression
Is a terrible cure
For a troubled mind.

Scroll down and turn off my music player if you watch the video.
