Memories of a modern bard

Across the vein of night/There cuts a path of searing light/Burning like a beacon/On the edges of our sight At the point of total darkness/And the lights divine divide/A soul can let its shadow stretch/And land on either side Earlier this week, a Facebook friend asked for folks to comment on their favorite song verse ever. I chose the above lyrics, the opening lines to “Nexus,” the first song on the 1981 double album “The Innocent Age” by Dan Fogelberg. Coming up with those lyrics, and thinking about Fogelberg’s music reminded me of a sad truth: It has been nine and a half years since he died of prostate cancer at the age of 56 in December 2007.
