Taking A Stab At Writing A Lyric

September is here I wave goodbye to summer Unpack the fall gear Cold weather is a bummer! I'm glad we're eased in With leaves as they change color Reminding me of when I played tag with my brother. Jumping into leaves We raked up into a pile Never misperceived A landing spot worthwhile Seasons changed again And snow now covers his grave So young he was when He decided life would end He thought he couldn't be saved.

the mixture of the two subjects kind of clashed. i like to keep the seasons apart from emotions not that what you have done is'nt the expression of a memory. except it comes so suddenly. sorry if i'm out on a limb and in your bussiness but you went from happy to suddenly sad. take another stab at it. each in it's own theme. john

Dear Karen, thank you so much for delivering the fire of poetry back into me, I have not written anything in awhile, after reading your comments I now feel that there is a purpose in poetry. Your words enlighten me and I therefore cannot wait to indulge myself within your souls poetry, this lyric sent a burst of energy straight into my mind, I feel no shadow stopping me. I just want to say thank you and cant wait to read your work. Blessed be within thee. Bellantony

this is the saddest poem of all become so many perish for lack of knowledge. the conversation should have been how to be saved instead or what saved people do. jhl
