Snatch of a song

Some days are empty, like the day before
Lights are out, curtains closed, sign's up on the door
Some days are empty, and I'd give anything
Just to hear a bluebird sing

Find me a bluebird
In my own back yard
Climb me a mountain
Can't be that hard
Sing me a new song
Every day of my life
Going to find me that bluebird
Make it all come out right

Sounds like a sweet John Denver song. (I liked his songs)

hello moose,
found your bloggerificness via billy the blogging poet's 100 blogging poets in 100 days. am making a point to read some of all of the blogs (becuase it's fun and a convinient way to make contact with other poets on the internet). anway, i thought i'd comment on this poem here... i love its two parts. though, they seem like very different poems. perhaps the difference between a verse and a chorus. the second stanza is a chant, with candor; the first is a plea, a poetic desire or a fairytale wish upon the stars. you said you might work on it more in the future? i would love to see more of the dynamic between the two stanza styles throughout a longer piece. a lovely introduction to your work on my behalf, thank you for blogging :)

Hi katy, and welcome!

Yes, the first is a verse, the second a chorus, and the whole thing is intended as a part of something larger... eventually.

Thanks for reading and commenting.
