My love of nitrous oxide (from the dentist, of course) is not private. And Sir Humphry Davy apparently has this same love, so much so that he wrote a poem, entitled
I’m Breathing Nitrous Oxide
The form is very curious. Not in the ideal dreams of wild desire have I beheld a rapture waking form. My bosom burns with no unhallowed fire, yet is my cheek with rosy blushes warm, yet on my eyes with sparkling lust of field, it is my mouth replete with murmuring sound, yet are my limbs with inward transport thrilled and clad with newborn mightiness around.
I took that from a radio transcription so I don’t know how the verse is broken up, but I’m a poetry ignoramus, so it doesn’t matter to me.
I played a show with Andy And The Pandy’s on Friday, and The Deming Sisters also played, and they are lovely. Start with It’s A Good Life I Love You. Listen closely to Bobby Don’t Ride Your Bike, the words are darling.
