Finding music

A friend of mine wrote a 'found' poem this week for a bit of fun. She used book titles on her shelf. I have copied the idea, but used titles of CDs instead, just a bit of fun, but I am not disappointed with the result!

Finding music

So far so good
I should say,
as we walk into the
magical ring
of Highway 61 revisited
and into the music
of modern times
and legend.

But the times they are a changing,
we need to let go the old ideas
and be new travelling souls
ready to meet the piper at the gates of dawn,
maybe, on an island.

And there we’ll play the healing game
until we are back on top.
Say you will,
oh, say you will.
I wish you were here
so we could play the game
and see pictures at an exhibition
in a summer garden
where the bramble briar hangs

See the astounding eyes of Rita,
know that we are travelling souls,
and that the river of sound
carries our love,
until it is a thousand kisses deep.
