FIRST: Go sing the song at   tid=60165

SINGING LESSON<g>
[rhetorical verse in Shakespearean sonnet form]


(1) WHY WRITE "ONCE MORE, WITH FEELING" SONGS AGAIN?

Why match the rhythm Joss used with new rhymes

that fit his pattern, but give sound new spin?

Not something that I'd do too many times, . . .


. . . but it's a well-formed challenge to your skill

of rhetoric, of poetry, of mind.

(I'm searching for a metaphor that will

reveal a line of sight to which I'm blind -- . . .


. . . will teach me things I do not know 'til now.

But metaphors -- like Oracles -- may hide

their gift of wisdom -- may well not allow

transmission --- as their meanings subdivide . . .


. . . as diff'rent eyes and ears grab them by force.

No marriage of your visions. A divorce.


(2) SO, maybe I will let my muse go play.

Just for the moment, "clarity" my goal.

Straight talk about that song here on display.

As sonneteering slayers I enroll, . . .


. . . just for this moment, in songwriting class.

The joy of singing may bring in the fun

to verse endeavors with more heavy mass.

Leave hard-book thoughts. We're off to beachy sun. . . .


BUT
more for volleyball than even tans. <smile>

How can you smack a spike without a net? <g>

(Who do you think you are? Just lazy fans?!?) <ewg>

In time, the ball within the lines. No sweat.


OH DEAR, I have run out of time. I quit.

Just sing the song. You'll get what there's to get.
<S>


you speak
