Add your thoughts 46 Comments. General Comment I think that in the first verse, Donovan is dreaming of the way he wishes the world and humans were. In the second verse, I think he's saying what they reall are. Histories of ages past Unenlightened shadows cast Down through all eternity The crying of humanity I think he's saying here that throughout history, mankind hasn't changed.
The shadow of previous eras cast on us. We are no different than the way people were a yrs ago. Since this song emerged during the, peace, love, and war era. I think the hurdy gury man is the hippies. Preaching that love is the answer and not war. Maybe not though. Great song otherwise. No Replies Log in to reply. There was an error.
