Poem On His Birthday

Rating: 3.4
In the mustardseed sun,
By full tilt river and switchback sea
Where the cormorants scud,

A shame that this was not checked for spelling errors before posting. There are several, and they really detract from the sense of the poem.Check this version against one in a book of Dylan's poems to find the errors. A great poem!

I agree. I found 4 differences/mistakes when I compared it with Dylan himself reading.

This has quite a few errors - don't take it to be accurately what Dylan wrote.
