Life is meant to be lived, may as well enjoy it as it is, society won't change it ways
but we can help by being nicer and just dance along to the groove of it's own beat.
So nicely written. I love this write. It speaks of music that is in our soul as well as
our heart.... Now lets dance

When Summer sings so sweetly at the River's edge,
loves lullaby is splashed by dancing feet... and I retreat to prayer.

Did you say, "It's posted.."?
I looked through all your poems, but did not see it???
Music Invigorates the mind, body and soul. Just what is needed in times like these! Just the medicine needed. You have injected vim and vigor with these words but what else could be expected from the 'healer'? Your presence on this site is a true revival of all that was and still is a guarantee to happiness/liveliness - if there is such a word!
Keep doing what you do best! Thank you Sir Richard!
