Long Play

Long Play

written by: Mike Turner



First notes of music
Waft from the stage
Bring us a message
From a different age

Tender emotions
Handed ‘cross time
From old composers
To your heart and mine

Beethoven, Brahams
Mendolssen, Bach
Jazz, folk and country
Blues, Soul, Pop and rock

All with a purpose:
To make our ears ring
Sway us with feelings
Have our souls sing

May their sweet music
Not fade away
Oft’ may we listen
Long may they play
