"The Yellow Snake" as written by and Robin Williamson....
Someone you saw
Stretched sleeping on the sand
Five withered violets cradled in his hand
His dreams are so loud calling in your ear

The yellow snake coils from the water
And all is refreshed far and near

    General CommentThis is such a beautiful song. It conjures up so many vivid images and feelings in so few words. It seems to be about someone who's had many disappointments but still somehow manages to reach the person he's holding out hope for. And I suppose the yellow snake represents the unexpected optimism that results from this welcome turn of events.
