Listening to 'Nettie Moore' on Dylan's Modern Times and thinking of the line from Baudelaire's Recueillement that Hamm quotes in Endgame. The sleeve calls it 'Nettie Moore' at least, though I suspect, if I'm hearing Dylan's catarrhal drawl rightly, that Nettie is in fact a Nellie.

Baudelaire: Tu réclamais le Soir; il descend; le voici

Dylan: Today I'll stand in faith and raise The voice of praise The sun is strong, I'm standing in the light I wish to God that it were night
