This morning, while taking the outgoing mail to the box, I noticed a few pieces of broken, blue eggs on the driveway. It was windy, with the storms and all last night, but there was nothing to indicate the eggs fell intact to the ground and broke.
Whenever I see Robin’s egg, I immediately think of a line from Joan Baez’s song, Diamonds and Rust, written about her break up with singer/songwriter, Bob Dylan. It is a very pretty song and I have seen it referred to as one of the best love songs ever written.
I heard it for the first time being covered by Blackmore’s Night, on their Ghost of a Rose album. I think that musically, it is the best version.
It has also been covered by Judas Priest (no, really) and here is a recent, live version.
