ODE TO JIM MORRISON Poem by Stephen Loomes


When the Renaissance as we call it
Filled the world with wonder
From human minds and hands
We all became much smarter
And in the 1960’s the light returned
With avatars of thought, deed and word
From which the world has learned
Jimi Hendrix who had been here before
Came back with flaming guitar
And Bob Dylan with his magic words
Ravi Shankar with his sitar
The Kennedys and Martin Luther King
There was colour, light and war
Waged by the ignorant
Against the changes that they saw
And flying above it all
With a mind beyond compare
Like Icarus too close to the sun
Appeared a mind who seised it all
James Douglas Morrison
