*more Than A Few*

Poem By Theodora (Theo) Onken

'Strawberry Fields Were Forever'?
Laid down evermore, in Beatle Memory -
Written and recorded at: 'Abbey Road'
Back in: The Sixties Of Free!

Back when the saying was:
'If you're going to San Francisco -
Be sure to wear some flowers in your hair'
Back when the English Music Explosion -
Helped shape the music everywhere.

I can still hear John Lennon Singing: 'Imagine'
The group singing: ' Sergeants Peppers Lonely hearts Club Band'
Back in the day where Love seemed free -
While in the background: The Beatles sang: 'I Wanna Hold Your Hand'

Back in the day when Peace was the sign and the call -
And Vietnam took more than a few -
Frank Bozello, my best friend, was 18
When he died, for the country he knew.

(((This Thing Of Ours)))

In the twilight of this quiescent moment-
I peruse this thing of ours-
Querying this palpable abtruse connection-
Am i deluded or wrongly perceived by the stars?

(((After The Rain)))

I missed you the other day
When the dew left its diamond glitter upon the grass
And the squirrels and frogs were frolicking merry
When the silence of daybreak calmed


It was in the Dawn of new beginnings
In a field so full of you
Armoured bouquets of Love
Covered by Heavens baby blue;

(((Early Eve Of Remember))) !

It t'was in the early eve of Remember- -
Before twilight had come around...
Where i found you with a basket of love so true...
And in the air t'was a melody of new loves sweet sound! ;


An ancient river carries your name-
In silver caverns so deep-
A Princess sits crying her heart out-
In the depths of sorrow, she continues to weep.

(((An Aubade)))

</></Oh such bitter sweet regret-
Comes the breaking of dawn...
'Tis much too soon, my darling
For you shall soon be gone;
