Come With Me

Come With Me


Come, come, the enchantresses sing
Mesmerizing and hypnotic
The sailors are lured
by these sea creatures, so exotic
 
A long time on the seas
forgetting the power of sirens
Charmed by their beauty
Forgetting their environs
 
Fooled by their wiles
Ecstatic at the attention
The unwise men
Unaware of the intention
 
Blindly complying
They are led to certain death
A ship on the rocks
Guarantees their last breath

Song Lyrics
I Got The Music In Me - Kiki Dee


Ain't got no troubles in my life
No foolish dream to make me cry.
I'm never frightened or worried,
I know I'll always get by.
I heat up (I heat up)
I cool down (I cool down)
When something gets in my way I go round it.
Don't let life get me down
Gonna take life the way that I found it.

CHORUS
I got the music in me
I got the music in me
I got the music in me
I got the music in me
I got the music in me
I got the music in me

They say that life is a circle (circle)
But that ain't the way that I've found it.
Gonna move in a straight line (ooh)
Keeping my feet firmly on the ground.
I heat up (I heat up)
I cool down (I cool down)
I got words in my head so I say them.
Don't let life get me down,
Catch a hold of my blues and just play them.

CHORUS

Feel funky
Feel good
Gonna tell ya
I'm in the neighbourhood
Gonna fly like a bird on the wing
Hold on to your hat honey,
Sing, sing, sing, sing
Heat up, cool down (cool down)
I got words in my head so I say them
Don't let life get me down (Don't let it get ya down)
Catch a hold of my blues and just play them.

CHORUS x2

Ain't got no trouble in my life,
No foolish dream to make me cry.
I'm never frightened I'm never worried,
I know, I know I'll always get by.

I got the music
Pretty music
I got the music
In me

Don't let it get ya down
Don't let it get ya down
Don't let it get you down
Don't let it get ya down
Don't let it get ya down
Don't let it get you down
Ha, ha, ha, ha

CHORUS

Don't let it get ya down
Don't let it get ya down
Don't let it get you down

I got the music in me
I got the music in me
I got the music in me
Don't let it get ya down
Don't let it get ya down
Don't let it get you down

Back in Time

Back in Time


I wanted to believe
that I could travel
back to time past
To escape the pain
and the memories
How long could it last?
 
Itching to be gone
Disappearing
into thin air
Touch the stone
In theory be gone
Without a care
 
Tired of your criticism
Weary now
of the humorless pokes
Drained of energy
I stagger 
My back on the ropes
 
Today is the day
I find myself here
In front of the stone
Concentrating hard
I say goodbye to you and
Back in time I am thrown

Time of the Season – Poem of the Month – March 2019

Time of the Season

The scent of orange blossoms
filling the air
The trees’ bloated fruit
already dropping to the ground
The beginning meets
the end of the circle
and Nature’s beauty is crowned
 
The bald eagle sits high
atop the pine
Surveying the landscape
for his prey
Butterflies fluttering
Searching for the sweet nectar
Lizards scampering away
 
A tropical paradise
thriving on sunshine
Rain an infrequent visitor
at this time of year
Exotic birds, colorful, 
Long legged and awkward
with no apparent fear
 
An alligator basking
on the bank of the lake
A roseate spoonbill
at his side
Neither caring
about the other
In harmony they bide

Smitten

Smitten


Hopes and fears
Clutched tightly to the chest
Impossible to share
Unless absolutely pressed
 
Glimmers of hope
Sprouting from roots of dreams
Close to the surface
Bursting at the seams
 
Love, the intrepid journey
to an unknown destination
Excitement thrilling
and willing, the captivation
 
Dizzy and giddy
Stars in the eyes
Love is the only answer
The ultimate prize
