WORTH READING & WATCHING: Simon & Garfunkel’s “Old Friends”

Simon & Garfunkel “Old Friends” 

Old friends, old friends sat on their park bench like bookends

A newspaper blowin’ through the grass / Falls on the round toes of the high shoes of the old friends

Old friends, winter companions, the old men / Lost in their overcoats, waiting for the sun

The sounds of the city sifting through trees / Settles like dust on the shoulders of the old friends

Can you imagine us years from today, sharing a parkbench quietly / How terribly strange to be seventy

Old friends, memory brushes the same years, silently sharing the same fears.
