Golden Years


Golden Years

What ever happened to the sixties child?
When days were warm and nights were wild
Where have to Woodstock people gone?
From the Matthews Southern Comfort song
Everyone was a Rolling Stone
Wore beads and bangles on their clothes
Psychedelic LSD
Golden years it seems to me
Golden years you must agree

Peter Green, Fleetwood Mac
Sergeant Pepper, Chicken Shack
Marianne Faithful in the news
Cream with Clapton played the blues
Jimi played it upside down
Whilst Ten Years After played in town
Grateful dead and CND
Golden years it seems to me
Golden years you must agree

Throughout the world the governments shook
And Tolkein people read ‘the book’
The film to see was Soldier Blue
Procul Harem shade the pale
Mick and Keith released on bail
‘Bookends’, ‘Graduate’ ‘At the zoo’
Dark side of the moon Apollo flew
Doing ‘Tommy’ live at Leeds, The Who

By 1970 the dream had gone
People wondered what went wrong?
The Hendrix legend died one night
No love at the Isle of White
Janice gone and no more Doors
But the music will live for evermore
No more Beatles for you and me
The golden years have gone you see
Golden years you must agree
Strawberry fields LSD
Flowers, love and Let it Be
Mary Quant, CND
Images that come to me
Golden years you must agree
Golden years it seems to me

Poem of the Day

poet Oliver Wendell Holmes

Life is real, life is earnest,
And the shell is not its pen –
“Egg thou art, and egg remainest”
Was not spoken of the hen.

Art is long and Time is fleeting,
