Across the Universe

   Across the universe

Has there ever been a band, 
That so many understand
Life changing music, made and played, 
By courtesy, of their hand

Imagination limitless, 
Creations lit the spark in us
Visions of a better time, unreal sublime, 
Took away, the dark in us

Those were the heady days, 
Absorbing us in many ways
Seducing ears, eyes filled with tears,
With how their songs amaze

Now I recall how sad we were, 
At the setting of the sun
But all good things, must come to end, 
When all is said and sung 

I would wrap up all those lines,
That tingle jingle at the nerves
And send them in a rocket ship, 
To burst, across the universe

Nothings gonna change their world
Nothings gonna change their words
Nothings gonna change their world
As they fly across the universe

    Very psychedelic. Towards the end I couldn't help but remember how I used to LOVE Rocket Man by Elton John. That song has always moved me. I know this was about the Beatles, but I was always a bigger fan of CCR, ELO, Billy Joel, The Steve Miller Band etc. etc. Still... it's a really good piece and I liked the imagination behind it. Thank you so much for checking out a few of my works yesterday... means a lot!

    Richard, you chose to use the title of my favourite song (Beatles or otherwise) and did not disappoint! I love that you turned this poem into a tribute to The Beatles. I was especially moved by the image of that rocket ship "bursting" across the universe. Congrats on your win in my contest :)
