Midnight on the Great Western 'The journeying boy' Thomas Hardy In the third-class seat sat. The journeying boy. And the roof-lamp’s oily flame.

Poetry and The Blues. Multiple meanings are frequently found in a song's content as in Barefoot Bill's 'Bad Boy'. The song appears as an apology for his crimes until the very last line: 'I ain't gonna sing no more, baby, that is all'. Instead of the expected 'sin' he uses 'sing, thereby implying that his sorrow is because he has been cowed into giving up singing and not because he repents.Read More
What is a Boy? Submitted By: Carolyn174. He's an imp and an angel, a dreamer, a tease An explorer of meadows, and a climber of trees. A runner of errands, and doer of chores.
