Prompts, Words and Pictures: Poetry from Songs

Tunes as Muse: Take two of your favorite songs, and match up a line from the chorus of one with a line from the chorus of the other. Then, write a scene that starts with the first lyric, and ends with the second.

I did this a bit different. I took lines out of two songs I love and put them together and then added my own in between.

Songs used are “Stairway to Heaven” by Led Zeppelin and “Nights in White Satin” by Moody Blues

The collage is mine titled “Lost”


My Dilemma

Letters I’ve written never meaning to send

Written in all that glitters gold

But hoping they will help my heart to mend

And clear the regrets of old.

As I wander past the memories that stalk

Looking for answers to clear the fog

Looking for hope as I walk

Absolution for my wrongs 

Lumbering in my dialogue

In a tree by the brook there’s a songbird who sings

Whose words in the song do tell 

Just what the truth is

And a new day will dawn

Will that truth allow my pain to begone

And in that new day will I know 

Which path to follow and which way to go

Can you hear the wind blow?
