Ol’ River Stomp, Drew Clayton, Lyrics by John Eagle


ol river stomp

 

Here is a new song by Drew Clayton. These lyrics are by John Eagle. This song reminds us of summer days and boating on the rivers and fishing for perch or other pan fish. John Eagle is from New Orleans and Drew from Nashville. They bring a good mix to the song.

This Song Will Always Cry


This Song Will Always Cry

All my songs are sad songs
since you’ve been gone
memories and love songs
all night long

My glass it feels hal;f empty
since you’ve been gone
and all I do is sing
these sad love songs

Oh I’d like to sing
some glad songs
And I’d like to bring
a smile
They say time can
heal all wounds Lord
but this song
will always cry
yes this song
will always cry

I walk the floor
from end to end
since you’ve been gone
and I dream about
what might have been
all night long
I guess it just
turned out this way
with me all alone
standing up here
with your memory
and singing
this sad love song

Oh I’d like to sing
some glad songs
And I’d like to bring
a smile
They say time can
heal all wounds Lord
but this song
will always cry
yes this song
will always cry

By
David Michael Jackson

Ununtrium, “Periodic Table of Poetry” poem by Chicago poet Janet Kuypers


Ununtrium
Janet Kuypers

from the “Periodic Table of Poetry” series (#113, Uut)
elements derived from the poem“Tall Man”
10/23/13

I can never hold you.
But when I step
within those walls
where I first found you,
I can then feel your presence
across the room.
A movement, a stir.
I feel it.
I can sense you
as the seconds slip by,
but after only
twenty moments,
I snap out of it.
I know you’re gone.

I compare you
to your friends,
and your heaviness
weighs me down.
You, with your long shadow
stretched across those walls,

you’ll only disappear again.

An occasional glance —
I’ll take whatever I can take.
Glimpses of your strength
is all I can capture
before you seem to
dart away
at what seems
to be
the speed of light.

You’re a stranger.
You stay tightly wound in your world.
But I want crack
your dense shell.
I want to know you.

I’ve sensed you.

And for some reason,
I feel I know you all too well.
