Thank you for being here, as I share my Glimpses Across The Barricades of life. Poems written long ago, and poems of life yet to be lived.
Glimpses Across The Barricades.
And the Music Plays on.
By Suzanne Burke.
Oh, how those melodies linger,
stroking our souls with soft fingers.
Refrains of the journeys we’ve taken
and the people we’ve known.
Lyrics haunting and taunting
Caught on the wind
Oft’ bringing sweet sadness
Of things that our memory will not rescind.
Anthems of times of upheaval
When the world lost its way,
Sung by those that stood witness
On far distant shores.
Songs of love, and of laughter
Songs calloused with pain
All linger in memory
As we dance in the rain.
The last song not yet written
That last post un-played
As we come unbidden
To our safe place in life’s shade.
