2012 November PAD Chapbook Challenge: Day 21 | Song Title Poem | WritersDigest.com

My day 21 poem is late. I spent yesterday shopping.  It is a song title poem. If you have a playlist with a lot of song titles, choose five in order and turn the titles into a poem. Unfortunately, my YouTube lists are mostly videos about how to do things and clips of funny animals and my work music just includes things like sonatas, overtures, and symphonies. They have inspiring titles like #9 and #44.

I do have some favorites on YouTube with titles. I am addicted to the spiritual and the peculiar, and even better if both.  Shape note music, Buddhist chants, Native American music, and a few odd folk-ish songs from the late 60s and early 70s are marked as favorites on my channel, I chose five of those.

Here’s mine:

Inner Voices

 

be Thou my vision,

let me see without question.

Will the circle be unbroken?

I am a lonely pilgrim astride

a horse with no name.

The sleeper has awakened.

I cannot return.

 

Inner Voices (R. Carlos Nakai)

Be Thou My Vision (Irish hymn)

Will the Circle Be Unbroken (hymn by Ada Ruth Habershon)

A Horse with No Name (America, written by Dewey Bunnell)

The Sleeper Has Awakened (Gayatri Mantra)
