An acorn carries an oak tree
Sleeping but for a little while;
Winter lies in the arms of spring
As a mother carries her child
...And never knows
How wild the wind blows
A thought carries a universe
A seed carries a field of grain
Love lies in the arms of change
As a joy carries a pain
And noone knows
How wild the wind blows
The mother of British singer/songwriter Nick Drake, Molly Drake was never a recording artist during her lifetime. She died at the age of 77 in 1993, nearly 20 years after her son's passing. At the time Nick Drake's cult was already substantial, but had yet to grow to such large proportions as it would within a decade. However, until the 2000 Nick Drake documentary A Skin Too Few, it wasn't known that his mother might have wielded a substantial influence upon his music, as that film included a couple of recordings of Molly Drake that bore some eerie resemblance to her son in style. A couple of recordings of her playing (on piano) and singing her own compositions, "Try to Remember" and "Poor Mum," appear on the 2007 Nick Drake compilation Family Tree.
