The Rolling Blues - Poem by Dave Alan Walker

The blues are rolling
like a train down the tracks
singing about the bad times
but hoping for a break

The harp player is blowing
like a train whistle before a stop
the rhythm player is playing
to the sound of the wheels on a track

The singer is singing
to the pain and the struggle
while we all sit and listen
to what comes from the heart

    Dave Allan Walker, I found this jewel trapping light in its full essence. The jaguar leaped out from the poem and got me. Thanks for the maul, it was terrific. A thought just occurred to me Jaguars are now technically made by us, thank The Lord, Bentley is still hand crafted in England. Something's are made of the soil. (Report) Reply
