All we dreamt in 73
lives on today in Glastonbury.
Conceived before the music played
as early summer’s fields made way
for merrymaker’s harvests’ hay,
a resonance was set in sway
that beats disharmony today.
Beneath the rainbow’s incensed streets
where now the hapless hopeless wreak
a pitiless array of needs
unmet but optimistic still,
‘not dead and not quite beaten, yet;
fifty quid’s on consciousness;
Realisation’s worth a bet,’
when there’s nothing left.
