Washington Street Addendum

Another side of Washington street is seen here in these images of the weekly farmer's market. The Flaneur passes through with a coffee and a burning ember under the nearest great tree.

 This is Suzanne Holland, 
who sings folk songs from America and the Isles,
I listen to those styles a lot, on radio, on record, in person,
and I regard her as unusally gifted

 It was a sparse day with a brilliant and scalding sun, 
neither a lot of farmers nor gleaners had showed up,
I pulled a chair up close to listen

Lovely folksinging with deep soul running through it, 
if you see Suzanne playing, stop and listen,
 and, who's gonna throw that minstrel girl a coin?
