The Words of Poets
 
Poem by my old friend, Linda Blake.  Linda's poetry always inspired and challenged me to compose music for it.  I hope I did this one justice.

Lyrics
poem by Linda Blake

Don't speak to me the words of poets;
Tell me something simple, like you'll
Stay with me for more than just two hours.

I will not ask you more than, please,
To take my hand and look at me.
Your thoughts, although I'd like them, can be free.

I wish that you would talk with me,
But if you would just walk with me,
The sky, the earth, the world would all be flowers
