This is the 1st time I have been able to explain my inspiration on a writing . Lou Reed , known as a rock artist , yet stood firm in his belief to not sell out . He was known for the band "The Velvet Underground" For me ? He was a genius of words , and music written . I had just moved to southern California at the time , and that band was considered punkish Rock or just for the Bowie fans ! Well , I now can write about the poem , yet wish not to bore anyone with words . I now am a premium member and this is fitting for it is the 100th poem written.
Below is the poem entitled Renaissance Reed which was written by poet
Rain. Please feel free to comment on this poem. However, please remember, PoetrySoup is a place of encouragement and growth.

Lou Reed , Mistral of his time
so you walked this road on the wild side
unique in music , never selling out
believing in Art instead of commercialize
Lou Reed the musician never compromised ~
Sweet Jane not enough for our crowd of eccentric rockers
still will live forever with the many that left before you
one can imagine from John Lennon to Johnny Ramone
a party in Heaven of the finest rock bestowed
no text , no MTV when they pursued a dream
New York, hotel Chelsea an age of Renaissance
ragged jeans and leather jackets ,Art on stage
No, your Rock not ever fade away , it will stay sweet Jane forever ~
For the fine Man with words , ode to Lou Reed .
