This week Bear has chosen BALANCE for our theme. Yin/ Yang equilibrium, elegant, eternal. One of those perfect songs which come to mind is The Rain Song by Led Zeppelin. Soothingly balanced. ♥
Here’s the ’94 live acoustic version during Plant & Pagey’s “No Quarter” reunion tour. Enjoy!
It is the springtime of my loving-
the second season I am to know
You are the sunlight in my growing-
so little warmth I’ve felt before.
It isn’t hard to feel me glowing-
I watched the fire that grew so low.
It is the summer of my smiles-
flee from me Keepers of the Gloom.
Speak to me only with your eyes
it is to you I give this tune.
Ain’t so hard to recognize-
These things are clear to all from
time to time. Ooooh…
I’ve felt the coldness of my winter
I’ve never thought it would ever go
I’ve cursed the gloom that set upon us…
But I know that I love you so
but I know that I love you so.
These are the seasons of emotion
And like the winds they rise and fall
This is the wonder of devotion-
I see the torch we all must hold.
This is the mystery of the quotient-
Upon us all, upon us a little rain must fall.
Just a little rain?
ooooh, yeah yeah yeah!
