Pure Class

Music was always my great love throughout all my years of living having liked many types in that time even although I couldn't really sing In the past decade of time I've really loved classical so much it's a music that reaches to the depth to effecting the heart with slightest touch To think I loved punk in seventies never believed I would change to this but classical covers such a span of emotional moods full of bliss My favourites cover many types from violin, harp and cello to clarinet, flute and guitar some up tempo to others more mellow It's such a treat to sit quietly to listen to a classic piece reading my favourite poetry such unity entwined wish never cease

Gordon, I like this poem. The title says it all. And your description of your reading room listening to music sounds like a perfect way to pass time. Nothing wrong with Talking Heads or Hüsker Dü. However, classical music reaches for a higher plateau in the human experience in my opinion. I've enjoyed the works of Debussy, Vivaldi, Handel, Mozart, Wagner, & Chopin to name a few. Note: I still enjoy The Clash & The Ramones too. -Richard

Hi Richard, Glad you liked it and your taste is so varied like me. My favs are classical along with country, folk and recently Scottish and Irish Gaelic music. I also was into punk in its heyday, Favs were Siouxie and the Banshees, Buzzcocks and Boomtown Rats. Have a great day, Gordon
