Autumn haiku

I saw a robin
Screaming at a crow that ate
roadkill, the bird's mate.

People on the highway

I bought a double CD called Light Flight: The Anthology, by Pentangle. They were a great British fock-rock (or folk-jazz) group. The album consists of songs from 5 LPs (one double) they made in the sixties and seventies. And it's pretty good.

But what amused me is that in the liner notes they casually mention that after leaving this record company they went on to make one more album, which is not included on this CD. That album was Solomon's Seal, and leaving it out is like saying "we decided not to include anything in this Beatles anthology after Sergeant Pepper." A little eccentric. Among the missing are: "Willy of Winsbury," "The Snows," "Sally Free and Easy," and don't forget this little number...
