Revisiting Bob Dylan


Tonight I'm ringing the praises of Bob Dylan
revisiting again, listening to 'Have Mercy'
track called 'Ring Those Bells'.
Sounds even more profound today
guess my ears are ten years older.

Track by track I'm listening hard
before I heard how everything man
everything is broken, fallen outa tune
cynical oh so cynical but true.
Dylan always tells it way it is friend.

'Man In The Long Black Coat' floats
is surely the stand out number.
Spiritual, mystical intense and plain weird.
This poetic song grabs upon my mind
intense oh so incredibly intense.

What good am I sings Bob Dylan
asking questions we all should answer.
So personal man oh so very personal.
Listening hard I'm hearing word conceit
called 'The Disease Of Conceit' man.

Lastly I'm hearing shooting star
about forlorn love gone yesterday before.
Grabs my heart strings so tightly
and Bob Dylan delivers the goods so,
so I'm playing have mercy again, again.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
