First off I would like to thank all those who have offered their assistance in helping me get my little project off the ground. I have done a little rewrite, and sent the thing off to Lord Russell for a look see, and perhaps a bit of advice. Like I said earlier, I am not a lyricist, and as such am not sure if I have the words in anything resembling a "lyrical" format. As soon as I have something that can be put to music I will provide copies to anyone interested.
As to Roger's comment... Thanks for the words of encouragement, but when I was writing a lot, it wasn't intended for publication. Most of the notes and poetry that I have jotted down over the years have been more of a "window to my soul" sort of thing. Although I do think of many of this group of Chordians as "family", there are 220 Thousand of us.... and we are not all that close! When and if this turns into a "song" that I think worthy of publishing, I will certainly consider posting it over in songwriting or where appropriate. Until then to me it is just a "poem with potential" and I am merely a lyricist in training, hoping to learn a bit about how to go about writing a good lyric.
Thanks again all and Take Care;
