Tag Archives: homage to Randy Newman

Daily Routine..( Rebooted August 23 2017 )

Every evening at 5.09
he leaves the office,
takes the streetcar
into town,
goes for a stroll
down to the park
by the canal,
there he sits
on the bench nearest
the ornate water fountain;
He dreams,
of a lost childhood
long summers ago
by the sea,
days filled with singing,
laughing and
crying;
Crying now,
the little girl
by the fountain
who has lost her way,
golden hair,eyes of grey,
reflected in his thick lenses;
As he watches her
he dreams,
of long summers ago,
a childhood by the sea
filled with laughing
and crying;
now in the park
he lies beneath a summer sky,
side by side with
the golden girl
and
she lies
very still.

footnote:-
this piece is a “homage”(rhymes with fromage) to singer/songwriter Randy Newman;let’s just say that it’s an “adaptation” of the track
“In Germany before the War”from his classic 1977 album,”Little Criminals”.
