Not a Tooraloora Loora .

I climbed upon a gentle breeze

That drifted slow on tranquil seas

And played soft music , just to please
                                             The anguish in my soul .

We floated south to turquoise skies

And danced on quilted clouds that rise

Which misty memories disguise
                                           Their glories to extol .

And catching dawn's bright morning rays

Transforming night to amber haze

The chorus sang it's hymn of praise
                                           And then , my day was whole .

Gliding high , above all harm

On thermals , soft , safe and warm

Guided by strong Angels arm
                                         'Till the Sandman takes his toll .

Inspired by Catie's Lull-A-Bye Contest .

    Hi, Sean. This has possibilities as a lyric. The rhyme scheme is quite good, I think, and it tries to be different within a folk metier, which I like. Thanks as always and best to you, Gerard.

    Awesome write here, Sean. One of my very favorite songs that I used to hear all the time back in the 1950's on the radio with Arthur Godfrey and I can't remember the name of the tenor ... either his first or last name was Dennis but anyway everytime he sang Tooraloora Loora, I would cry. What does it mean? and, how is your spring on the emerald isle ... smile ...
