Poet's Notes About The Poem
(Show Details...)

  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.

Renaissance Reed

     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 .
