Along the walk I took today I never pictured what I’d see A dove, a tree, a whole forest And there were elves in front of me To my dismay and to my fear They just came thundering right by And stopped right there straight in my path I blundered and let out a cry The biggest one had a tattoo Upon his hairy chest And then the one who was so small Wore an old, brown leathery vest It was the one in the old vest who spoke to me high with a shrill “The forest is the danger here” He said loud with an angst until I bent way down to his small size An umbrella right near his ear “I covet my own privacy So you just go away from here” He looked me up and then he said Like a brave king upon a throne “I’m seven years the king of here This is the forest I do own!” So then I took a large step back Letting me give this guy some space But he didn’t want to let it go He got right back up in my face “I said that this is my own land And you’re no longer welcome here!” I turned to him and loudly said “For that I don’t really care!” I turned again to walk away And then I felt his little fist He didn’t realize I was so big So I grabbed him by his wrist I swung him up right to the tree Which was standing there where we were I told him “take a flying leap” And now that tiny elf’s no more!
Like a fledgling in the morning who steps upon the dew The old-timer stops and views it In the blondish amber hue He watches as it canters through fields of wheat and grass Unable to find some solace A grimace at this pass Where will nature take it the babe he looks upon He fears not for its safety Yet waits until it’s gone.
I am not new to Song Lyric Sunday as a reader, but I am as a participant. Having fun with it last week I wanted to join in again. Here is my take on the theme…the first song that popped into my head
“Give Me One Reason”
Give me one reason to stay here And I’ll turn right back around Give me one reason to stay here And I’ll turn right back around Said I don’t want to leave you lonely You got to make me change my mind
Baby I got your number, oh, and I know that you got mine You know that I called you, I called too many times You can call me baby, you can call me anytime You got to call me
Give me one reason to stay here And I’ll turn right back around Give me one reason to stay here And I’ll turn right back around Said I don’t want leave you lonely You got to make me change my mind
I don’t want no one to squeeze me, they might take away my life I don’t want no one to squeeze me, they might take away my life I just want someone to hold me, oh, and rock me through the night
This youthful heart can love you, yes, and give you what you need I said, This youthful heart can love you, oh, and give you what you need But I’m too old to go chasing you around Wasting my precious energy
Give me one reason to stay here Yes and I’ll turn right back around Give me one reason to stay here Ooh and I’ll turn right back around Said I don’t want leave you lonely You got to make me change my mind
Baby just give me one reason, Give me just one reason why Baby just give me one reason, Give me just one reason why I should stay Said I told you that I loved you And there ain’t no more to say

Do For You
I feel a flutter in my chest and feel the wind beneath my wings like a bird upon its cage feeling free and so it sings Needing nothing now but love like a hanger for a shirt wanting to be hanging out not laying in the dirt but the cold can come and take it and try to halt its song like a blocked path in a garden a tree root is that strong To deny yourself the freedom like a child from a womb is to wish you had no lifeline Only future filled with doom so you finish what you’re doing try to stay along your way keep your vision very close don’t let sadness make you stray Be eager to find that someone to share your love, your flow and go just where your heart leads don’t stop or let that go.
Back in the day, right out of college, I spent all my time with my closest friends, Scott and Eric. Heather was almost always there and Bill, too. After having dinner and continuing drinks on many-a-night I would somehow find this song and drag everyone into the fun…
