Sara Lownds – Scorpio Sphinx in a calico dress

Actress, model, and former Playboy bunny, Sara Lownds met Dylan while she was still married, but the two became romantically involved soon after her separation. She became his first wife after they secretly wed in 1965, when she was pregnant with their first child. The songs he wrote for her read like mystic tributes, including “Sad-Eyed Lady of the Lowlands,” “Love Minus Zero/No Limit,” and of course, “Sara”. We adore Sara Lownds here at The Vampire’s Wife.

Sara, oh Sara
Scorpio Sphinx in a calico dress
Sara, Sara
You must forgive me my unworthiness
