Finding Old Music.


Music has been in my life,

Been in my life since birth.

The more I listen to it

The more drawn in I become.

The wonders of the notes

Send such joy through me,

Bringing every emotion to me.

Through the years I have listened,

Listened to so much music

That I realise that even at my age

There is still so much out there,

But so little time to hear it all.

Then comes that day

When I hear a piece of music

That I loved so many years ago,

And realise that it is like getting in touch,

Getting in touch with an old friend.

    Good write Gold.
    Yes, very old music for us two. How was music in 1066? You got that lyre-thingy still?!

  • Paul Bell

    Totally agree. Just a note can bring back great memories.

    • Goldfinch60

      So true Paul.

      Music is the unceasing flowing river that passes by
      There is no beginning and no end
      It’s eternal
      And so soothing
      Exactly life is too short to hear all
      And every tune connects to a near one beside
      Thanks dear poet for sharing this beautiful poetry

      • Goldfinch60

        So kind spilleronsheet, much appreciated.


      • Lorna

        Listening to music is like another form of magic carpet that takes us right back to a certain place and time. Best form of memory there is. It's probably why Alzheimer patients still remember to sing - it's what's left of their lives.....

        • Goldfinch60

          It certainly is Lorna. Yes the songs of the past are still with many who are suffering.
