Rumours of Glory

When I was in my early twenties, my favorite musician was Bruce Cockburn, a Canadian singer and song writer. One of my favorite songs of his is Rumors of Glory, from the album Humans. It opens with the following lines:

Above the dark town
After the sun’s gone down
Two vapour trails cross the sky
Catching the day’s last slow goodbye

Every time I look up in the sky and see a vapor trail, this song plays in my head.
