THE TIN MAN, SNOWFLAKES & A POEM
‘Chasing the Sun’ by Zoolon
I oiled the creaky hinges to the door into the eaves of my attic studio today and for the first time understood why the Tin Man out of The Wizard of Oz had such an addiction to oil.
Saturday morning, I woke up to a curtain of snowflakes charging horizontally across my eyeline. They were carried along on a storm called, ‘The Mini Beast from the East’. I tried writing a lyric about it, but no joy. Snow = right mood orchestral or surreal sound art. The thing is I had some words in my head. I’m a songwriter, not a poet but this time settled on just words with no melody to hide behind.
MAGIC TO THE EYES OF SMALL PEOPLE
Carried on the east wind
That freezing cold easterly
Cocky springtime overlooked
Silent snowflakes as noisy starlings
A murmuration of cloud shavings
Whirling white, swooping, nosediving
United, they put on the gig of all gigs
Hypnotizing a frosty festival audience
Magic to the eyes of small people
Time for some music, an instrumental, ‘Bread & Jam’ I wrote just to have a bit of fun with a guitar. I hope you enjoy;
One from Emmy the Great. This number has the title ‘Easter Parade’. Its from her ‘First Love’ album. Again, I hope you enjoy. She’s magic and writes great lyrics;
