Friday Music Muse
Whenever I am looking for new poems for my Tuesday Poetry Posts I am always drawn towards music lyrics that I want to share, but I feel like I should separate the two. So I am now going to have a weekly post of song lyrics that move me. (I will try very hard to not make them all Bob Dylan lyrics)
I thought I would show some restraint and not use Bobby for my first post. How about this beauty by Fleet Foxes?
by Fleet Foxes
Meadowlark, fly your way down.
I hold a cornucopia and a golden crown
For you to wear upon your fleecy down.
My meadowlark, sing to me.
Hummingbird, just let me die
Inside the broken ovals of your olive eye.
I do believe you gave it your best try.
My hummingbird, sing to me...
Isn't that pretty? I'm not going to post entire songs because that can be a bit much I suppose.
