Summer Music by May Sarton

Summer is all a green air—
From the brilliant lawn, sopranos
Through murmuring hedges
Accompanied by some poplars;
In fields of wheat, surprises;
Through faraway pastures, flows
To the horizon’s blues
In slow decrescendos.

Summer is all a green sound—
Rippling in the foreground
To that soft applause,
The foam of Queen Anne’s lace.
Green, green in the ear
Is all we care to hear—
Until a field suddenly flashes
The singing with so sharp
A yellow that it crashes
Loud cymbals in the ear,
Minor has turned to major
As summer, lulling and so mild,
Goes golden-buttercup-wild.

A New Favorite! Lebanon!

Oh, Lebanon, life is brief
Don’t sit alone in your constant fear
Open up, I shan’t be like Canada
Oh, Lebanon
Oh, Lebanon, life is brief
Don’t sit alone
In your constant fear

Lebanon…J.S. Ondara

Pacing the Cage

Sunset is an angel weeping
Holding out a bloody sword
No matter how I squint I cannot
Make out what it’s pointing toward
Sometimes you feel like you’ve lived too long
Days drip slowly on the page
You catch yourself
Pacing the cage

I’ve proven who I am so many times
The magnetic strip’s worn thin
And each time I was someone else
And every one was taken in
Hours chatter in high places
Stir up eddies in the dust of rage
Set me to pacing the cage

I never knew what you all wanted
So I gave you everything
All that I could pillage
All the spells that I could sing
It’s as if the thing were written
In the constitution of the age
Sooner or later you’ll wind up
Pacing the cage

Sometimes the best map will not guide you
You can’t see what’s round the bend
Sometimes the road leads through dark places
Sometimes the darkness is your friend
Today these eyes scan bleached-out land
For the coming of the outbound stage
Pacing the cage
B. Cockburn

Such A Night

Rest In Musical Peace

… over the course of a remarkable life and career, he evolved. From addiction to three decades of sobriety. From sordid escapades as a dealer and pimp to Disney soundtracks and the model for sleepy-eyed, jive-talking Muppet musician Dr. Teeth. From hometown outcast to one of its most outspoken advocates and beloved characters.

Welp…my Mama told me there’ll be days like this…

  1. When it’s not always raining there’ll be days like this. 
  2. When there’s no one complaining there’ll be days like this. 
  3. When everything falls into place like the flick of a switch. 
  4. When you don’t need to worry there’ll be days like this. 
  5. When no one’s in a hurry there’ll be days like this. 
  6. When you don’t get betrayed be that old Judas kiss there’ll be days like this. 
  7. When you don’t need an answer there’ll be days like this. 
  8. When you don’t meet a chancer there’ll be days like this. 
  9. When all the parts of the puzzle start to look like they fit. 
  10. When everyone is up front and they’re not playing tricks. 
  11. When you don’t have no freeloaders out to get their kicks. 
  12. When it’s nobody’s business the way you wanna live. 
  13. When no one steps on my dreams they’ll be days like this. 
  14. When people understand what I mean they’ll be days like this. 
  15. When you ring out the changes of how everything is…
