My friend Clive over at Take It Easy,, has invited me to participate in a three day quote challenge.  Here is day 2 for your consideration.

We are deep into the moody twilight of autumn here in New Jersey. A time of the day that is filled with the hoot of the owl, the smell of a fire and  a time for melancholy reflection.


The Sound Of Silence  by Paul Simon is for the very expression of moody reflection.

“Hello darkness, my old friend
I’ve come to talk with you again
Because a vision softly creeping
Left its seeds while I was sleeping
And the vision that was planted in my brain
Still remains
Within the sound of silence

In restless dreams I walked alone
Narrow streets of cobblestone
‘Neath the halo of a street lamp
I turn my collar to the cold and damp
When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of a neon light
That split the night
And touched the sound of silence”

Thanks for taking the time to stop by,

About Bernadette

I live in the small town of Haddonfield, NJ. I am at an age in my life when I seem to spend time thinking and musing about life. These musings are usually stimulated by my walks through Haddonfield, my reading of books and fellow bloggers, and my interaction with my group of fabulous family and friends.

  1. Thank you for posting one of my all-time favourite songs. Those words are so expressive. Well, they were until the Disturbed destroyed them in their abomination of a version of this beautiful song!

      1. I agree! And I’d want to vote for Leonard Cohen too. That’s the trouble with awards like that: they are subjective by nature, and immediately invite comparisons with those who didn’t win. And I still love Sounds of Silence 50 years on!
