Taylor Swift Remembers Windermere Poets in ‘the lakes’

2 Min Read

Taylor Swift’s folklore seemingly sits as the focal treasure map for the side venture of other musically crafted gemstones. One of these is the bonus song “the lakes,” found at the very bottom of the deluxe album’s tracklist, having hit stores only yesterday. It’s such a rare find that the vinyl sounding number as if you were personally cooped up in Swift’s den can’t be found on any streaming platform.

If your hands have yet to touch the deluxe album, then a Google search can lure you towards lyrics obtaining to it on the typical culprits like AZ and Genius. Couplets such as “Take me to the lakes, where all the poets went to die // I don’t belong and, my beloved, neither do you” and “A red rose grew up out of ice frozen ground // With no one around to tweet it” is the invisible string tying reputation and folklore together. At first glance, the only similarity is that both albums have a lower casing. However, it is the narrative of her relationship with Joe Alwyn being the something beautiful forming out of the chaos of her discography being stolen that acts as a primal theme. It’s the ode to Swift reminding herself through her relationship that despite the circus backdrop, she’s a writer foremost.

There is no word on when “the lakes” will be seen on streaming platforms, but in the meantime, what other meticulously crafted gemstones does Swift have up her sleeve?
