Poems - The Sixties
Really enjoyed the tribute, Mary Ann
I was browsing the net and listened to Peter, Paul and Mary, then Simon and Garfunkel and then Bob Dylan. I guess that's what inspired me to write this poem.
Thanks again mary ann.
Thanks for the heart mate. I'm really pleased that I grew up in the sixties when I see how the world appears to be these days. However in reality apart from technology expanding the way it has and me getting older, I don't suppose the human side of life has changed much. The same good and bad keep popping up. As for free love...I don't think is free any more. Somewhere along the line someone has to pay.
Thanks again Conor mate.
Thank you Ronald for your comment. Oh gosh yeah, we can't have anything natural anymore can we. We just had Brittney Spears over here bringing headlines for lip synching on her shows. I watched a doco on John Lennon in the US recently. The white house did not like him.
Thanks Ronald for your great comment mate.
I hope you enjoyed 'bad moon rising' Harry. The sixties seemed much better to me, but then again, anytime is the best if you're breathing in and out.
Thanks again mate.
of yours, I felt free and well, a hippie I guess
I've had enough of wars, as per my poem
The Duke, give me the folk songs of
Caroel King, what a poet she was! Simon
and garfunkel and that's real music.
Your poem gets me started
How are you going? Thanks for your kind comment. Yes, I still love listening to S & G, and many more of the groups who gave me a lot of pleasure years ago and still do. Not many good protest songs these days, but you may like to listen to 'united breaks guitars on youtube' It near destroyed an airline in the US. Ah, the power of music.
You've made me want to write another poem about the sixties! This was great to read and I sure wish I knew the tune you had in your head to go with it. Maybe your daughter will sing it, huh? If she does, I want to buy a copy!!! ;0)
Anyway...you gotta heart from me too, Linds.
Ah, it's so good to hear from you Julie. I gathered you'd been flat out like a lizard drinking. I don't think Megan will bother but you never know. I guess a tune that's already been a huge hit if Kevin Johnson's 'rock and roll gave me the best years of my life' ...now I'm waiting with baited breath for your take on the sixties Julie.
Thanks Julie for your comment and heart.
Thanks Rory. I guess in the sixties it was my time when everything seemed to be new and changing, but has it accelerated since then. Thanks for reading and leaving a comment Rory.
Thanks for your comment. I'm not sure if Paul has read them. I'm going to write a PM to him shortly.
Thanks again Gail.
