Album Both Sides Now. At Last Lyrics. At last, my love has come along My lonely days are over, and life is like a song At last,the skies above are blue My heart was wrapped in clover The night I looked at you. I found a dream that I could speak to A dream that I could call my own I found a thrill to press my cheek to A thrill I'd never known You smiled, and then the spell was cast And here we are in Heaven, for you are mine at last.

A must-have for Joni Mitchell fans! Hardcover in brown paper wrappers. This complete collection of her poetry and song lyrics reads like a poem cycle that finds unexpected meaning and beauty on the page

A must-have for Joni Mitchell fans! Hardcover in brown paper wrappers. Dust jacket is a bit worn at the upper right hand corners and has a bit of dried glue over the ISBN where there was once a price sticker, but is otherwise pristine and wrapped in protective mylar. This complete collection of her poetry and song lyrics reads like a poem cycle that finds unexpected meaning and beauty on the page. After displaying a haunting and sophisticated quality in her first albums, Joni Mitchell (1968), Clouds (1969), Ladies of the Canyon (1970), and Blue (1972), Mitchell reached her poetic apotheosis in the surreal and mythical Hejira (1976) and Don Juan's Reckless Daughter (1977).

In the generation of singer-songwriters who came to fame in the '60s, none has had more impact--or created a more evocative, bittersweet, literate, and reflective body of work--than Joni Mitchell. Today's music owes much to her innovation and inspiration. This complete collection of her poetry and song lyrics reads like a poem cycle that finds unexpected meaning and beauty on the page.After displaying a haunting and sophisticated quality in her first albums, Joni Mitchell (1968), Clouds (1969), Ladies of the Canyon (1970), and Blue (1972), Mitchell reached her poetic apotheosis in the surreal and mythical Hejira (1976) and Don Juan's Reckless Daughter (1977). During the '80s, Mitchell used her words to explore and mirror the commercial energy of the decade. She became more reflective in the following years with Night Ride Home (1991) and Turbulent Indigo (1994). Mitchell continues to grow her already remarkable talent, as is evident with her latest work, Taming the Tiger (1998).The importance of Mitchell's entire oeuvre is unequivocal when seen as a lifetime of accomplished writing. As epic poet and tragedian, the power and honesty of her voice has inspired generations past and those to come. Joni Mitchell: The Complete Poems and Lyrics gives us the first opportunity to reconsider Mitchell's written work and her exalted place among the great poets and lyricists of our time.This paperback edition includes the lyrics to Joni Mitchell's new album, Taming the Tiger, as well as an index for easy access to all titles.From the Trade Paperback edition.

The song lyrics stand alone as poetry.

Wow, how exciting that we were going to get a book of Joni's lyrics and poetry! What do we get? A book of Joni's lyrics and poetry. No artwork. No commentary. No photographs (except for the nice one on the cover)... even worse, every album of Joni's has the lyrics included with anyhow, so if you have all her Cd's, do not bother with this book. Save your money and look for her old songbooks (with wonderful artwork) online. How disappointing, and what a slap in the face to Joni's fans from whoever threw this together. (Which is most likely what they did)

`The Complete Poems' covers the Canadian singer's work from her first self-titled album in 1968 through 1994's `Turbulent Indigo.' The book provides a very nice look at the talented songwriter's work without the voice that some find irritating. (I happen to find it beautiful.) Lovers of modern poetry and great lyric writing will enjoy the book immensely.
