Subject: RE: Origin: High Germany
I have always thought that one of the great virtues, something to be admired and revered, about so much folksong, is its knack of so often teetering in the very edge of doggerel without ever quite tumbling over; which has so frequently a perverse poetic effectiveness. The naive art of such as Le Douanier Rousseau or Lowry comes to mind as in some ways comparable.
