The Dragonflies Lair~Thread XXIX
The Muse and Poets of the Lair | July 12, 2006 | bentfeather

Posted on 07/12/2006 8:30:09 PM PDT by Soaring Feather



My Dragon Fly and Me



If I could be a Dragon Fly
and wing my way through the sky
I would never be shy
just me and my Dragon Fly!

By moonlight we ride the wind
chase the comets tail for fun
by day we would hide from the sun
our fragile wings would come undone

On darkest nights we would use
fireflies as our guide
we would dip and we would glide
through the heavens open wide
and scatter diamonds in the night sky
my Dragon Fly and me...

And we would wing past our lovers
silent in the night...
to kiss their face in our flight
much to their surprise and delight
my Dragon Fly and me in sight...

Such a view do we share
away up here in the air
of breezes soft through our hair
my Dragon Fly and me a pair...

Irridescent wing
flitting from flower to bud

Wandering



I've been wanderin' early late
From New York City to the Golden Gate
And it don't look like
I'll ever stop my wanderin'

My daddy was an engineer
My brother drives a hack
My sister takes in laundry
While the baby balls the jack
And it don't look like
I'll ever stop my wanderin'

I've been in the army
I've worked on a farm
And all I've got to show is the muscle in my arm
And it don't look like
I'll ever stop my wanderin'

My ma she died when I was young
My daddy took to stealin' and he got hung
And it don't look like
I'll ever stop my wanderin'

Snakes in the ocean
Eels in the sea
I let a redheaded woman make a fool out of me
And it don't look like
I'll ever stop my wanderin'

I've been wanderin' early and late
From the New York City to the Golden Gate
And it don't look like
I'll ever stop my wanderin'
No, it don't look like
I'll ever stop my wanderin'

Silent Feet

Night crept out on silent feet
left a space for morning light
dawn looked in to see a sight
night foot prints turning into light

"I thought so once; but now I know it."

How about some music to inaugurate the new thread? And the typhoon didn't pass by, it's just slow in getting here. Should hit tonight, but it's not as strong as a hurricane, more like a tropical storm. Since most buildings are made of concrete, they stand up to it effortlessly. Should be 3 days of web surfing, drinking coffee, and shopping for air fare to Thailand!

Now about that music, do you have any Bobby Darin? Or George Clinton?
