    Not until the Canadian musicians did a tribute performance of a few of Leonard's compositions did I really hear this song through the voice of the woman who interpreted it then.

    The English river, the emotional vessel of the dreamscape, the poetical underpinnings of social behavior and the introduction of charm, the swan, the silent grace of pretense and deception. Alterior and worldly motives when mixed with innocence and blind love and the inevitable loss of the same innocence and maturation of the heart.
    It's all there, Leonard just takes us to the door and then allows each listener to assess their readiness to crack open the door according to the mood of the moment.

    The zen master reminding us that it makes no difference what we might be thinking/feeling in this phase of awareness we presently inhabit, all will be waiting for you when you are ready. "The rose of full romance is open wide"
