    Very true he was a great singer. With Annies song a colleague of mine and I would whistle it in harmony while we were in the office.


      THANKS ANDY ~ Whistling @ Work. Brings back memories. When I worked in an Industrial lab we had a Welsh Boss who encouraged us to Sing @ Work ! We were all from LIVERPOOL so we could all sing along in harmony like a BARBERS SHOP GROUP ! Less SAFETY ~ more HEALTH ! Yours BRIAN ~ Angela sends her love to JOYCE XXXX

      John Denver had everything country music could ask for - a lovely read Brian - you always seem to touch on my favourite singers and numbers so thank you.

      • BRIAN & ANGELA

        Thanks FAY ~ My parents tell me that when some of the 60's SINGERS like JIM REEVES had disappeared JOHN DENVER came in ~ in the 70's ~ like a breath of fresh air and most of his songs charted in the UK ! Pleased you enjoyed it ~ songs do bring back memories ! Yours as always BRIAN.

        I'm gonna get all sensitive - it don't take much to do that sometimes! A lovely write and tribute B&A.
        A pity Fido is insensitive. Well he isn't really. He is extra-hyped up to sniff out anything swoony, or not marked 18+ if it should be. Woof! Not now Fido, not for this poem! lol.

        • BRIAN & ANGELA

          Thanks UNCLE STEVE ~ Pleased you liked it. JOHN's songs are very catchy & catchable which is why they always got in the TOP 10 and people sang them in the Street. Excellent Poetry and simple tunes (like the BEATLES !) which is why they are memorable ! Yours BRIAN

        • orchidee

          Bit more - you got me humming Annie's Song more often now. There's a danger I will actually sing it. Meoowwooo! heehee. Gives me goose-bumps, not swoony ones though!

            Caro Amico Brian,
            Una poesia molto carina!
            John is an all American favorite... especially to the older generation! I do enjoy his songs and his dedicated love to Annie! Thank you for this wonderful share!
            Abbracci e Baci...

              CAIO LAURA : Grazie per tu commento ! JOHN DENVER had the common touch : he was the (COW)BOY next door and wrote & sang straight to our HEARTS as well as our MINDS. He was more interested in People & Good Causes than Money or Fame and often donated his Royalties to Hunger Causes : Combatting the NRA & Guns and Conservation. He died much too young (53) and the World lost a great Philanthropist. Abbracci e Baci con Amore : Brian ed Angela XOXOX

              • LaurašŸŒ»

                I totally agree with you, mio Caro Amico!

                Hi Brian and Angela,

                An excellent poem and tribute to John Denver.

                A fascinating, inspirational and interesting man.

                I saw the Chad Lowe TV film on the life of John Denver a very good film.

                Keep writing
