Perhaps Robert Frost's poem will create some associations for you: Tree at My Window by Robert Frost. Tree at my window, window tree, My sash is lowered wh…en night comes on; But let there never be curtain drawn Between you and me. Vague dream-head lifted out of the ground, And thing next most diffuse to cloud, Not all your light tongues talking aloud Could be profound. But tree, I have seen you taken and tossed, And if you have seen me when I slept, You have seen me when I was taken and swept And all but lost. That day she put our heads together, Fate had her imagination about her, Your head so much concerned with outer, Mine with inner, weather.
Gone for a Burton comes from "Going for a Beer". During the Second World War it was used in black humour when someone died in battle. Usually the RAF. They had not died or had… gone missing, they had only slipped out for a Beer. Burton's being one of the biggest Breweries and Brands of Beer at that time. -------------------------------------------------- This response is incomplete. The phrase actually appeared in print, for the first time, on the 30 August 1941 in the New Statesman. It was first used when referring to the death in action of pilots in WWII. From where did the expression spring? Who knows. Was it derived from a Spanish Burton (a kind of complex pulley arrangement for Royal Navy ship stowage - see http://compass.seacadets.org/pdf/nrtc/sn/14067_ch4.pdf and see p.34); used figuratively as fitted for a suit from the tailors Montagu Burton - eg. as one would say 'he's being fitted for a wooden overcoat' i.e. a coffin; beer as produced by a brewery located in Burton-on-Trent (this area is actually a well known brewing town in the Midlands); is it rhyming slang based on the name of that town? 'Went' - 'he's at Burton-on-Trent [went]'; based on the name of the town, going for a beer , it could be said 'he's gone for a Burton'. It's interesting to note that the brewing company Burton Brewery Co Ltd closed its doors in 1935. It was a minor league player in the beer stakes before it 'went for a burton' so was not missed on its closing down. Which one to choose? Well take you pick. It could be any one of them or others. But knowing the frailties of human nature, my bet is on the phrase having a connection to beer. Addition to answer The Burton Brewery Co Ltd may not have existed after 1935 but the brewing industry consisted then of many more breweries. Still today (2010) brewing is a major part of Burton upon Trent's industry with two major breweries and several micro breweries still operating. So in effect you can still "Go for a Burton" in Burton.
What is the meaning of the phrase the people keep a comin but the train done gone from the song Mary had a baby?
Cheryl Kirk-Duggan, in MARY HAD A BABY (A Bible Study based on African American Spirituals, published by Abingdon Press) writes: "In this version of 'Mary had a Baby,' this re…frain ends every verse: 'The people keep a-comin' and the train done gone.' Trains were a new reality in the newly emerging industrial age of the early nineteenth century. They connected places that had been previously isolated. Trains represented a way out, whether physical spiritual, or imaginative. Train imagery figures prominently in Africa American lore. In the spiritual 'Get on Board, Little Children' 'the gospel train is comiong, the cog wheel is a-moing' and rumblin' through the land." "Get on board" to reach the land of spriitual freedom. There is also the historical image of the Underground Railroad, which took passengers from station to station on its way to physical freedom.... "The phrase may constitute a spiritual warning. Mary's baby represents freedom, salvation and deliverance. "Oh my LOrs!" Do not miss your opportunity to worship him. Jesus is the way out of sin and death."
A viewpoint; a position or attitude or belief or anything that colors everything you see in the world. [It is not an opportunity, but (in common American usage) a over-arching… point of view.]

The person that is lying there dying closed their eyes (windows) and then they could not see to see means they died.
Depends on the vehicle. Sometimes you can pull up on the glass and push the button and the motor will move just a little bit. Eventually, you will get the window up. If that d…oesn't work, you have to take the inside panel off. Some motors unbolt from the assembly, you take the motor off and raise the window and reinstall the motor to keep it up. This is easy for most newer cars that use a track to raise and lower the window. Older models, before the early 80's have a spring in the assembly to help raise the window. If you take the motor out on this type, you run the risk of loosing a finger. The window will raise quickly and if you are between the arms of the assembly, it is just like a pair of scissors. If you can't take the motor out, some are made as part of the track assembly, you can remove the bolts or nuts that hold the bottom of the window to the assembly. There should be two bolts on the bottom edge of the glass, either a Phillips head or more likely a bolt with a 10 mm head. Take the bolts out and block the window up.
