Bring back the melody

Bring back the melody

Bring back that lovely music
That I listened to before
When songs had lovely melodies
That seeped into your core
When you could lift your voice and sing
To heaven up above
With Peter, Paul and Mary
Their music I did love.

I remember when a kid
When the King he came along
He always sang those melodies
As he also sang his songs
With that lovely voice of his
That sent chills down my spine
And every song had a lovely tune
That made me feel so fine

Now all we get is walls of noise
And lots, and lots of chords
The kids, they call it music
They think they’ve got us fooled
But it all goes round in circles
One day I’ll hear again
Those lovely songs with melody
That eased my childhood pain.

    peter - i agree that there's nothing like the songs we grew up with. i've been getting into the blues and jazz lately (and i still love some classical, too!), which is also great. nice poem...

    Thank you so much Ilene. Of all the music I've heard classical is my very favourite. As I grow older classical music brings me great peace. Thank you for your kind comments, my friend....peter

    I agree with you that some of the so called music is just a lot of noise and hot air..There has always been some good music from the beginning of time and some bad in my opinion but today it seems that there is much more bad..Thanks for the visit to my page..Your comments are always uplifting..Sara

    Peter I couldn't agree more. It was a great era that is sorely missed even by those who didn't experience it first hand. In reading your poem I can sense the different role that music played. Great write!
