Write an Ode(or poem of praise) to Music

Ode to Music

There is no road
to Tipperary
better than the song
about the road,

and no stairway to heaven
or more divine,
than that insane bridge
in the song by Zepplin

and if you really drove
your Chevy to the Levy
you would find
it was not dry at all,

Music flows there
through the boulders
of your childhood,
coating memory
with melody
which you
still sip

in your seat
behind the wheel,
born to be wild,
ticket to ride
the long and winding road
to the last
you will ever hear
on earth.

Barry Lane
