Six String and A Bonfire

A wonderful party on the beach is over
Memories drifts back to a distant time
Fresh,wild and time controller
Eager to turn our life into a big rhyme

Bonfire,a six-string and electric vibes
The air filled..with dreams and hopes
Equality for all,not like seperate tribes
A hope that we all be treated like folks

Heart of Gold,Neil Young streams out
Another dude, a six-string on his back
Accustic tunes that`s what It was about,everything was right on track

As morning chase the beach party away
Everyday life comes fast as it always do
Maybe the setting was just another cliche
I belive alot from that era came through

    Lovely poem, Arild. Yes, i think that some of the peace and the love came through the 70's after all. Love the saying at the bottom. hugs, Catie :)

    a time when time was for the taking. when parents worked and we were faking. listening to music about our future. making babies and slowly awaking.
