Subject: RE: The Dutchman (M. Smith): meanings?
Interesting thread. I will see Michael on Feb. 6 and see if I can get his take on this. This is a song that I have sung almost more than any other. To me it is one of the greatest love songs ever written. It is about pure love and caring, the type of love that blossoms from the seeds of passion we plant in our youth. As the love grows from these seeds, we reap a harvest of genuinely felt, and deeply rooted caring. The song seems to capture that for me.
