50 Years Grateful (my tribute to The Beatles)

50 Years Grateful

A child,
eyes on the screen,
saw more than four musicians,
looked beyond pleasant melodies
at the strength within words.

Those words
were my passion
and in them I discovered
the beauty found in poetry
by the songs they composed.

My life
became a quest
of finding my own rhythm
in the construction of poems,
and I have them to thank.
