The Lyrics

Youtube here.
Blessed silence, my old friend.
I hear no talk the room contains.
There's words I envision wafting,
Sometimes even while I'm sleeping.
Good, the visions that I dreamed of still remain,
As words ... brain.
Within my blessed silence.


In restful dreams I do bemoan
Errors meet I have cop phoned.
Feat done I do rest and vamp,*
I try to turn my collar to my lamp
But my eyes aren't stabbed,
By any kind of light,
There's only right,
That clutched the blessed silence.


And in the wakened me did draw,
My key and blank screen keeping score.
Foresee writing but not tweaking,
Foresee sneering but not gleaning,
Foresee drafting words that I will never share,
'Cuz didn't dare,
Perturb my blessed silence.


'Dupe', said I, 'You did not grow,
Silence means under control
Hear those words and they might teach you
Take that song it just might teach you'
And my words, like latent nonstop jelled
And echoed
From my blessed silence.


Old standby came to my aid
A parody I have made.
Hoping no disclaimer, warning
On the words I was forming,
Just the title said,
'These words writ by someone
They're written not on my walls
My words just do fall'
They whisper in my blessed silence
*vamp - verb: piece (something old) with a new part Example: "Vamp up an old speech

The OS and your parody relates well to "The Sound of Silence". I echo all comments above! Also blessed silence is important taking exams in school. Here's some serene and peaceful 5's to add to silence.

I'd thought I'd chime in on this one with 5's. Very Shakesperean

Silence is golden and so is your parody, always one of my fave OS.

Pat - Since we have been friends since before we were both writing on Amiright, I feel that I have an advantage over the other readers and I am happy for you that you are now free for maybe the first time in your life or at least for many many years. This is so upbeat - I totally get it and I'm totally happy for you. And this as usual shows your expertise for poetry and parody writing. I think I speak for most of us when I say that we have missed reading your very original and unique style of writing and seeing your name out here. Hope to see more of you out here. Welcome back! And of course you get huge 5's!

Thanks, Guy!! That was so sweet of you!

The one for Tuesday is even clearer, Unfortunately, somebody got the title mixed up and it reads Thank You A"" , that should be Thank You All...geez! I was going to thank everyone for letting me ramble on over the years...lol

Thank you Malcolm!
