*”If music be the food of love, play on.”
Play hard, but with a sweet guitar, play softly too.
Each note you play, I’ll sing along with you.
Play for me from night until the dawn.

Wily wordsmith wields wisdom and wit

no matter foisting poetic riffraff (mine)

Next Chapter
Innocent product of the 50's, baby-boomer
Soviet Union, nuclear bombs, duck and cover

Said goodbye to Mom and Dad

Ode To Bobby Fischer
Child of darkness, child of scorn,
The devil danced when you were born,
For demon seed from Morphy passed,
Would haunt your days ‘til everlast.

Predestined to die derelict,
An iso-pawn so cynical,
How cruel a fate awaits the one
that conquered Caissa’s pinnacle.

With skills eroding into...Read More

Premium Member The Dance
I would have danced for you
 but you never asked
I guess you knew
 this fool's  two-step 
my rock and roll masquerade
 hid my coordinated awkwardness.

I listened to your music
 laughed and loved at your vocal renditions
Pavarotti, Bocelli, and names...Read More

SOS
Patient was tarred by the new angle

Millions of toes stood up, danced to the beat...Read More

Rock and Roll
Went to a party
And savored the chance
To groove to some oldies
And dance, dance, dance, dance!

The theme was the 50’s;
We all dressed the part
And soon as we got there,
The music did start.

The twist and the pony,
The stroll and the swim,
To honor...Read More

Premium Member Music is in my Soul Thanks to Daddy
I love classical music, for it reminds me of
Walt Disney's musical full-length featured comics.
Snow White, Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty,
And when I was older, Fantasia, my favorite.

I love Willy Nelson, Johnny Cash, Loretta Lynn,
Reba, and her daughter-in-law, Kelli Clarkson.
They remind me of...Read More

Blinded by eternal love
Blinded by eternal love
Falling endlessly from above
Sunk down deep in my soul

To the drum and fife
