To Paul

To Paul - whose words depict our times Within melodic runic rhymes As woven lyrical designs To Paul - your Tug of War in life Inspired you to pen Peace Pipes For a world besieged with strife To Paul - the idol of our youth Who sang of love in words of truth And suffered much undue abuse To Paul - whose music paved the way For Sargent Pepper’s Band to play And gave us dreams of Yesterday To Paul - whose Wings taught us to fly By granting hope and leave to try With joy that begged to touch the sky To Paul - whose sadness now we see In loss of love through destiny Our prayer for him is Let It Be

Hello Jane A sensitive piece. Beatlemania lives, I'm glad to say. I'm thinking of writing about Dylan, except everyone else has. So the competition is probably fierce. Regards Alan
