Default GL Narrates Poem "Ode for a Winter's Night" by Alan Frew

The Canadian rock band Glass Tiger recently recorded the song "Song for a Winter's Night" which was written by Gordon Lightfoot. (In the 1980s, Glass Tiger had two songs which made it into the top 10 of the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 pop charts.)

Here is a link to a video of Glass Tiger performing "Song for a Winter's Night": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pFsdbLoWY68. (The video was filmed at Casa Loma in Toronto.)


At the end of the video (from 4:12 to 4:46), Gordon Lightfoot reads the short poem "Ode for a Winter's Night" which was written by Alan Frew, the lead singer of Glass Tiger.


The following link has the audio of Lightfoot reading the poem (without Glass Tiger's performance of "Song for a Winter's Night): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f3vd3Qqv8Fk.
