Diamonds and Rust

“We both know what memories can bring
They bring diamonds and rust “

I loved Joan Baez’s song “Diamonds and Rust” when it first came out, and the more the years go by the more it resonates. This was a very lyrically creative time in her career, perhaps best shown by the beauty and creativity of the second to the last verse which describe that one moment in time which can be relived but can never be recaptured.
