Crooners - Poem by gershon hepner

Listening to crooners as they sang
their sentimental lyrics,1940
to ’60, with a whimper and no bang,
made one feel the world was never naughty.

Their music now returns and makes us happy,
and though it’s strange, the lyrics are endurin’,
recalling times when we were pampered with a nappy,
like warmth that comforted like our own urine.

    Crooners were a little before my time but I do appreciate the 'mood' behind that type of music. It just seemed so much more romantic......when men were men and women were ladies. I think I was born years too late. I really enjoyed this poem Gershon. (Well, ya kinda lost me on the comforting warm urine but..... :) to each their own. Take care. Sincerely, Mary (Report) Reply
