POETRY AND SONG LYRICS

I often see the connection between poetry and song lyrics and whilst they are not always

compatible, the following lines from Edward "Eddie" Marsh to the lovely music of Ivor Novello's

"Land Of Might-Have-Been" serve my point of view well.  See what you think.

 

Sometimes on the rarest nights

Comes the vision calm and clear

Gleaming with unearthly lights

On our path of doubt and fear

Winds from that far land are blown

Whispering with a secret breath

Hope that plays a tune alone

Love that conquers pain and death

 

Shall we ever find that land of might-have-been?

Will I ever be your king and you at last my queen?

Days may pass and years may pass and seas may lie between

Shall we ever find that lovely land of might-have-been?
