There was an error. I wrote the song - or started at least - in the shower one morning. It comes from a very real and consistent thought that the children and the flowers are my sisters and my brothers. I do not feel separate from any aspect or from of life. I feel part of it, and bound to it, and the way I expressed the feeling was to use the phrase "the children and the flowers".

There is a brotherhood there, and a sisterhood. The song is basically autobiographical. I intend to lead people to the mountains; I intend to lead them back to the earth, back to the spirit. Songs like "Rhymes and Reasons" are a way of doing that for me.
Thanks for sharing. Flag ryan on November 28, General Comment these lyrics are incorrect. Right words, but the order is a mess. Correct lyrics are at lyricsdepot.
Mary: Rhymes and Reasons
On Rhymes and Reasons , the tables are reversed, and the burden is ours to bear with her. That Carole King is able to carry it off, and even to uplift us with her honesty, is part of her greatness, for it is finally the extramusical dimension of her personality that makes her records so compelling.
Having listened to it many times, I think that Rhymes and Reasons is a major work, a record that you have to live with for awhile, and refer to often, in order to assimilate its full impact. This will present a problem for those who will find the words too simplistic, as well as for those who will miss the transcendent musical vitality present in varying degrees on her three previous albums, and here considerably attenuated.
For the first time, there are no reprises of her great hits from the 60s.
The musical virtues of Rhymes and Reasons are subtle. Sign In Don't have an account? Start a Wiki.
