Fragments and thoughts, a performance "All the Leaves are Brown/Cliftonville Dreamin" by kind permission of Julia Riddiough: 

To the Garden: A Walk and Talk Through Time and the Seasons with TS Eliot -





Fallen Leaves Festival Garden Gate 2016
All The Leaves Are Brown/Cliftonville Dreamin’

All the leaves are brown
All the leaves are brown
And the sky is grey
And the sky is grey
I've been for a walk
I've been for a walk
On a winter's day
On a winter's day
I'd be safe and warm
I'd be safe and warm
If there was only a way
If I there was only a way
Cliftonville dreamin'
Cliftonville dreamin'
On such a winter's day

Stopped into a church
I passed along the way
Well, I got down on my knees
Got down on my knees
And I pretend to pray
I pretend to pray
You know the preacher likes the cold
Preacher likes the cold
He knows I'm gonna stay
Knows I'm gonna stay
Cliftonville dreamin'
Cliftonville dreamin'
On such a winter's day


All the leaves are brown
All the leaves are brown
And the sky is grey
And the sky is grey
I've been for a walk
I've been for a walk
On a winter's day
On a winter's day
If I didn't tell her
If I didn't tell her
I could leave today
I could leave today
Cliftonville dreamin'
Cliftonville dreamin'
On such a winter's day
Cliftonville dreamin’
On such a winter's day
Cliftonville dreamin’
On such a winter's day

Notes
California Dreamin’ is a song written by John Phillips and Michelle Phillips and the best known version is by The Mamas & the Papas, who released it as a single in 1965. The song is #89 in Rolling Stone's list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time. The song became a signpost of the California myth and the arrival of the counterculture era.
