Sunday Dispatch #210

He lived only for his dreams, and his sadness was dearer to him than all life itself.

~Claude Arthaud, Dream Palaces

There was a boy,
A very strange
Enchanted boy,
They say he wandered
Very far, very far,
Over land and sea.
A little shy and sad of eye
But very wise was he,
And then one day,
One magic day,
He passed my way.
While we spoke
Of many things,
Fools and kings,
This he said to me:
"The greatest thing
You'll ever learn,
Is just to love and
Be loved in return."

~Eden Abbez

Written by Eden Ahbez :

The following is transcript from a recording made in 1992

recorded by Joe Romersa.


Many years ago, when "Nature Boy" was the number one song all over the world, I was on one or two shows. And, on one of the shows, the man said, "What is your background? Where did you come from?" And my poem came to my mind, I thought: Oh yeah, I'll tell him. You really want to know my background? He said, "Yes, I do. You're a famous man. There's a mystery about you." So I told him. I said:

Once far into the desert land I went

to search as men are want to search for truth.

And there in meditation, all alone, quite suddenly,

I came upon a youth,

one in who's face all joy and sorrow blended.

And as the holy book upon whose pages

I saw the quest of birth and death had ended.

And read the eternal secret of the ages.

He spoke to me, this wondrous child.

His voice was strong, his eyes were mild.

I knew not what he said to me,

but blessed was my reverie.

"I am a being of Heaven and Earth,

of thunder and lightning,

of rain and wind,

of the galaxies,

of the suns and the stars

and the void through which they travel.

The essence of nature,

eternal, divine that all men seek to know to hear,

known as the great illusion time,

and the all-prevailing atmosphere".

And now you know my background.
