We are all affected by music in one way or another. And whether we appreciate the melodics of it all, a good lyric touches a chord (see what I did there?) and has a way of sticking in our craw. Think Finnegan, and begin again! But, be it Ira Gershwin or Lennon and McCartney, a lyricist is a true poet. It is where I cut my poetic chops.
So, think of a lyric you enjoy, or listen to some music and cull a line to use in your poem or as your inspiration. Credit the source. Music doth have charms. Let it speak to you!
“Why should I gain from His reward? I cannot give an answer. But this I know with all my heart: His wounds have paid my ransom.” (From Stuart Townend’s How Great the Father’s Love for Us) Who can sing with a voice that breaks at the thought of unending mercy? © Marie Elena Good, 2022 #seventeenintwentytwo
DRIZZLE OF THE RAIN I hear the drizzle of the rain, like a memory it falls. ~ from Kathy’s Song by Simon and Garfunkle Flushing other thoughts from my brain keeping me with only you in mind. The cold misty droplets find me longing for a torrent; a storm to warm me with recollections of where we were; of whom we’ve become. And when it is done, I am awash with the realization that we once loved. Every dismal day reminds me you’re gone. (c) Walter J Wojtanik - 2022
