It was 40 years ago today that Sandy Denny died.  I well remember getting in from the pub and hearing the news on the radio.

Seems like yesterday.

We’re off to the cemetery later today to lay some flowers.
She won’t be forgotten.

This bothers me more as the years go by, rather than less. 31 is far too young, and I wonder what she would have produced.

Why is the inscription on her gravestone - The Lady Alexandra Elene MacLean Lucas (Sandy Denny) 6.1.47 – 21.4.78?

"The lady she had a silver tongue.
For to sing she said,
And maybe that's all.
Wait for the dawn and we will have that song.
When it ends it will seem
That we hear silence fall.
The lady she had a golden heart,
For to love, she said
And she did not lie.
Wait for the dawn and we'll watch for the sun.
As we turn it will seem
To arise in the sky.
We heard that song while watching the skies,
Oh the sound it rang
So clear through the cold.
Then silence fell and the sun did arise
On a beautiful morning of silver and gold."

Read this just before heading to our local record shop for record store day .  One of the 'releases' was Like An Old Fashioned Waltz.  On any other day would have at least thought about parting with 28 quid for it, but not today .
