Another Silly Rhyme – Forgotten Symphony.


This silly poem was inspired by the following word prompts:



I sat down to write a symphony

Like the great composers of yesterday

Something to resonate inside of me

It seems people couldn’t care less today

Of things like melody or harmony,

Tunes that make you want to sing along

Remember music from those golden days?

You just cannot beat an old-time song.

“You’re adorable, Miss Florabel,

Let’s go down to the garden wall,

I’d like to kiss your hand, madam

If you let me be your little lamb”.

OK so maybe those great songs of old,

were not so great or even gold.

Maybe they were a little twee,

So, whoops-a-daisy, woe is me.

I’ll go back to writing poetry,

And leave those old songs where they belong,

Forgotten, like my Symphony.

Music for Hump Day

Wednesday is sometimes described as Hump Day because now it’s downhill to the weekend.

I hope this song uplifts you and helps you on your way. 🙂



I find the lyrics of this song really does resonate with me.

It is a shame that it is more aspirational than an actual reflection of what the world is, it is a world that could be.
