Yes, Life's Quite an Adventure

Yes, Life's Quite an Adventure

A Poem by Jennie Baron
"

This is my effort at creating a poem from song titles of one band, namely Yes.

"

If you take a (roundabout) route

To the (heart of the sunrise)

And find yourself on the (south side of the sky)

(Yours is no disgrace).
(I’ve seen all good people) lose their way

And when they ask directions

Get only a (long distance runaround).

 

You may even find a kindred spirit

To accompany you on that road

And you won’t be the (owner of a lonely heart)

Because (love will find a way) somehow;

It always does.

 

If not, (hold on).

Whatever happens, surely at the end of the journey

We’ll have (wondrous stories) to tell.

(And you and I) will drink and laugh

And tell all our tales

Like (starship troopers)

Returned from adventures on distant worlds.

Very creative. Great idea integrating the songs with the poetry. Has a carefree "whatever happens" tone. Enjoyed this much.

Thanks a million, Ms. Renee! You're too kind.
love this! Clever, funny, and inspiring- totally ingenious! Because somewhere, perhaps(over the rainbow), we we can be a(happy wanderer), and no longer endure another (hard days night)

That's great Jennie, i love Yes and this poem of included titles is a fine tribute and a humorous one too, getting lost by a 'Long Distance Runaround' in the passing of Chris it makes a nice tribute to his band, great writing my friend :)

:) Aw, thanks again.
Hm. This seems an answer to my previous review. :D

"To the heart of the sunrise" is a fabulous line.

NOTES: I don't think the parenthesis is necessary.

A rather cool exercise, and it turned out well. I found some of those songs playing in my head when I read the title.
