*** I Got The Blues For You ***

Pelican blues, jay walking on velvet souls
Somber and detach, mayhem
Pickering the night of pre dawn
The choir of your anger, screaming
In tune to the decaying sounds
Of the strings Silverado
Ascending in D Minor
Descending in G Major
Flavor never a waiver
Impacts……….heart raptures
“Come and sway with me, ” the voices say
“Absorb my tone, within the tone,
You’ll hear the grumble mumble”
Sudden death and numb
The rhythm retires
The blues in dire
What come next will be your desperados
Attach the strings to your yester hellos
Soulful revival
My guitar humbles
The plucking and strumming
Erode…….to your gravely swing

    YES, SIREE, YOU ARE THE TOP OF THE HAYSTACK! ! ! WHO CAN COMPARE? THE EIFFEL TOWER, THE EMPIRE STATE BUILDING IN SO FAR AS REACHING TOWARD THE SKY? YOU'RE ALREADY IN THE CLOUDS, FILTERING ABOVE OUR LIVES, LIFTING OUR SPIRITS AND, YES, MAKING US CRY WITH ADORATION AND, YES, ENVY. WE ALL WANT TO BE LOVED AND CHERISHED AND YOU WRITE THE SONGS, SPOUT THE PASSION, CAUSE US TO DREAM AND EXAMINE OURSELVES. LOTS OF FIDGETY PEOPLE OUT THERE NOW BECAUSE OF YOUR SURREAL ABILITY TO LIGHT OUR FIRES, SO TO SPEAK. NOT ONLY SHOULD YOU PUBLISH YOUR WORKS, BUT, YES, YOU SHOULD INCLUDE A CD WITH YOU SINGING AND PLAYING AN INSTRUMENT. MORE PEOPLE WILL TAKE UP DANCING AS WELL AS ROMANCING, I'D GUESS. NICE COMBO. YOU SINGING AND DANCING, I MEAN. ENJOY. THANK YOU, CAROL

    Wow this is extreamly good.
    I got a little lost in the words themselves, but it carried me away for a moment.
    I applaud you.
