A Melody In Eternity 4.29.2009

Without a new book to hold my mind and
focus my thoughts, I’m at a loose end to-
night; started singing my favourite songs
in intervals of thirds or sixes; delighted by
the vibration felt right through my being

I sometimes cry over the loss of song in
my life; I never dissolve into a song any-
more; still cherishing the melodies that
used to drive me to tears when I was
small – I SHALL become a song

A melody playing in eternity, my song shall
include all the notes from high soprano to
low bass, I shall feel the joy reverberate
through all of me until the only thing left
is the song - nothing else

Holds the same enchantment; to become
my favourite song, crying with the notes
of the sweetest melody, is my
favourite fantasy....

We'Ll Meet Again

“We’ll meet again, ” sang Vera Lynn,
more than sixty years ago,
and now, when records do not spin,
and spin is what men say they know
but really don’t, because they never wore
the moccasins of those they claim
to understand from days of yore,
we listen, asking what became
of all those heroes who once fought
for liberty and freedom and
believed the values they were taught,
their heads not hidden in the sand,
and realize that although Vera
sang out “We’ll meet again, ” they wouldn’t,
because time marched into an era
where what they hoped to do they couldn’t.

Inspired by Dame Vera Lynn’s song “We’ll Meet Again, ” which is top of the charts in the UKS, more than sixty years after she sang it http: //www.youtube.com/watch? v=cHcunREYzNY) . Dame Vera is 92 years old, and this song is currently more popular than the songs of the Beatles’ that were re-released in a new format less than a week ago. Wikipedia explains:
'We'll Meet Again' is a 1939 song made famous by British singer Vera Lynn (#29 (US,1954)) with music written by Ross Parker and lyrics by Hughie Charles. The song is one of the most famous songs of the Second World War era, and resonated with soldiers going off to fight and their families and sweethearts. The assertion that 'we'll meet again' is optimistic, as many soldiers did not survive to see their loved ones again. Indeed, the meeting place at some unspecified time in the future would have been seen by many who lost loved ones to be heaven. The song gave its name to the 1943 musical film We'll Meet Again in which Vera Lynn played the lead role. Lynn's recording is featured in Stanley Kubrick's 1964 movie Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb, and was also used in the closing scenes of the 1986 BBC television serial The Singing Detective. During the Cold War, Vera Lynn's recording was included in the package of music and programmes held in 20 underground radio stations of the BBC's Wartime Broadcasting Service (WTBS) , designed to provide public information and morale-boosting broadcasts for 100 days after a nuclear attack.

A Deleted Version

I love to hear the song
But not by my ear
The song is penned for some body
Who turns the song towards me?
After a few of serious songs
This melody seeks to set right me.
My heart longs to hear the song, however
Sing to kill me.
When I hear the hymn of the song
I feel I am in battlefield with no foes,
And
Rain is nowhere….but I am in rain.
Don’t sing for me-because
I got the upsetting curse not to listen this song.
My heart vehemently turns down the sound.
Carve the lyrics on my heart
By that
No humans perceive the sound of my heart’s whispering.
These absolute lines will be coming to my end
As a deleted version.

The Funeral

They played a slow, slow song that day
And walked in drab array;
They played a slow, slow song that day
As the casket was rolled away;
They played a slow, slow song that day
And my thoughts went astray;
To the times forgotten and the times long past
To memories I thought would never last
They played a slow, slow song that day
Perhaps to keep our sadness at bay;
They played a slow, slow song that day
All the birds began to sing
From the robin to the blue jay;
They played a slow, slow song that day
We cried and wept for lack of what to say;
They played a slow, slow song that day
And promised the pain would stop,
And we thought...
It may
