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 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
she lies
very still.

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”.
