    LOS ANGELES (AP) — Conflicting information about Joni Mitchell’s health was released Tuesday, with a longtime friend stating in a court filing that the singer was unconscious and unable to care for herself while a statement from the Grammy winner’s website stated she is alert and expected to make a full recovery.

    Joni Mitchell Remains Hospitalized; Is 'Alert' and Expected to Make a 'Full Recovery'
    By Jeff Nelson and Melody Chiu
    updated 04/28/2015 AT 08:15 PM

    After court documents surfaced Tuesday stating Joni Mitchell is "unresponsive" in the hospital, a new statement on the singer's website is clearing up reports, assuring fans she is expected to make a "full recovery."

    "Contrary to rumors circulating on the Internet today, Joni is not in a coma," says the statement. "Joni is still in the hospital – but she comprehends, she's alert, and she has her full senses. A full recovery is expected."

    I'm also reading that she's gonna be OK. PR? I dunno.

    One of the few folk tunes that moved me in the 1960s was "Michael From Mountains" composed by Mitchell. A haunting melody, with lyrics that are like poetry, as all great lyrics are. You could read these without the music and still be touched. The recording perhaps best known is by Judy Collins in 1967, but here's Joni's own rendering:



    Michael From Mountains
    by Joni Mitchell

    Michael wakes you up with sweets
    He takes you up streets and the rain comes down
    Sidewalk markets locked up tight
    And umbrellas bright on a grey background
    There's oil on the puddles in taffeta patterns
    That run down the drain
    In colored arrangements
    That Michael will change with a stick that he found

    Michael from mountains
    Go where you will go to
    Know that I will know you
    Someday I may know you very well

    Michael brings you to a park
    He sings and its dark when the clouds come by
    Yellow slickers up on swings
    Like puppets on strings hanging in the sky
    They'll splash home to suppers in wallpapered kitchens
    Their mothers will scold
    But Michael will hold you
    To keep away cold till the sidewalks are dry

    Michael from mountains
    Go where you will go to
    Know that I will know you
    Someday I may know you very well

    Michael leads you up the stairs
    He needs you to care and you know you do
    Cats come crying to the key
    And dry you will be in a towel or two
    There's rain in the window
    There's sun in the painting that smiles on the wall
    You want to know all
    But his mountains have called so you never do

    Michael from mountains
    Go where you will go to
    Know that I will know you
    Someday I may know you very well


    BTW, I've read that "Michael" was her husband, also a folk singer, from whom she parted just before she wrote this.
