Tango

entry picture

 

The beginning is timid
time has not any limit.
magic movements are slow,
we dance the tango of love.

It's the music of feelings,
bliss and passion revealing,
dance of flight and explosion
of hidden love.

When we part it’s only for a moment

The beginning is timid
and it's not so vivid,
then it turns into wild
and grasping dan...

The Trumpeter

entry picture

 

The war was all around

And the city was small.

The doctors laughed at him,

He was not like de Gaulle.

 

Well, may be the trumpeter?

OK, trumpeter, as a trumpeter!

 

Being a trumpeter is so good,

At least you don’t have to bow.

The bullets whistle over your head,

As the winds sometimes blow.

 

But why it happened like that?

For a boy ...

It's the Music that Matters!! - A Poem For Sophie Lancaster - Never Forget X

entry picture

It’s the Music That Matters!

 

The Metalhead strums his air guitar

The Indian man sings while playing his sitar

It’s not the colour of his skin

- It’s the music that matters!

 

Panpipes in the mountains

Music in the fountains

It doesn’t matter where it is

- It’s the music that matters!

 

Synthesisers and Electropop

Strut your stuff and bop till you drop

marriage merely confines it to one form.

But if I were to ever conform,

I would do it for you.

 

The thou...
