EVENING SOLITUDE

EVENING SOLITUDE

Took a break with James Taylor  for a guide,

Found him on You Tube, took his album for a ride…

Ate my supper in the quietness

Quiet time with James is probably the best.

No one came through–they all seemed to hide…

Thoughtful of them, letting me quietly ride.

ADDED MATERIAL

A friend drops off today’s paper,

Some days it’s fat–others–in taper…

All that I see

Is worth it to me,

The news about a caper.

SANGUINE SATURDAY NIGHT

SANGUINE SATURDAY NIGHT

The sanguine watches TV with her tea,

While Melancholic writes his poetry…

They both were tired after the house party

And both dozed off a while.

Sanguine cherishes WONDER WOMAN,

On “ME-TV” Saturday she’s coming…

Melancholic may make it for STAR TREK–

“Honey, give me just a sec.”

Darkness reigns after eight o’clock,

The Poet keeps from writing crock…

Pretty soon the apartment door will lock

And they’ll both be in for the night.

ALLUSIONS TO SPRING

ALLUSIONS TO SPRING

“Le Sacre du Printemps,”**

Sgtravinsky’s ode to Spring…

Eviscerates the inner man

As discordant chords ka-ching.

Heavy rumblings from the rite

Of virgins dancing ’round…

Past Elders staring hard

To see which will be bound.

Spring rites of fertility

Deeper than Druids’ way…

Hold the ancient mysteries

Before talen away!

On and on the weary cycle goes,

Building to a lusty fever pitch…

Every year the Elders get their choice–

All this to celebrate that  itch.!

–Jonathan Caswell

** “Le Sare du Printemps (in French)” , or, THE RITE OF SPRING, by Russian composer Igor Stravinsky, was written in 1913, as an avant-garde piece of orchestral opera…with stage settings, choreography and costumes.  Its debut on May 29,1913 caused a near riot in the audience!  Listen to it…and you’ll inderstand why (not easy to listen to, the first time.  Information largely from WIKIPEDIA….and memory.

BELTANE BENEVOLENCE

BELTANE BENEVOLENCE

Have you heard the latest “thang.”

Royalty’s timing Beltane…

As a time to annouce

The next baby to bounce

From under Kate Middleton’s wing!

Some one on radio said

Tonight, Royals stay ahead…

Of pagan times

That happen to line

Up with a titular head.

Beltane (the celebration) is here,

And Kate’s contribution is clear…

A baby girl

‘Round which Daddy will twirl,

Would be good  to announce this year!

I hear pagan orgies

Will be part of the festivities…

Please for your own sake

Of protection partake,

Why should disease bring us to our knees?

And although my warnings are mild,

Remember the life of the child…

Perhaps produced

When lust is loosed,

Fetal tissues are babies wanting to live for a smile!

LATE-NIGHT RADIO WONDERS

LATE-NIGHT RADIO WONDERS!

Rode home part-way with Clyde Lewis,

GROUND ZERO, for the clueless…

Oft mentions stargates

U.F.O. debates,

Bringing the paranormal to us.

COAST-TO-COAST AM, with George Noory,

Sometimes tells a similar story…

History, politics,

All these get their licks,

I got home too soon and I’m sorry!

Ate blue corn chips driving home

And drank DIET MOXIE alone…

MOXIE tasted fine

It had been some time,

It tasted okay on its own!
