Thread Name: origins: The Dutchman (Michael Smith): meanings?
Subject: RE: The Dutchman (M. Smith): meanings?
Too many of my aged friends and loves cannot see themselves in the mirror any longer; they see only a decrepit caricature.
Each time I've listened to a recording of "The Dutchman" over the radio I've heard:
"and dear Margaret remembers that in me."
I imagine he does understand she sees him more completely than he can himself.
