five foot two
eyes of blue
I’m a little bit
fonder of you

a cup of coffee
a sandwich and you
here in my arms
my bundle of love

sentimental me
I’ve confessed
to the breeze
I’m in love again

sleepy time gal
don’ wake me up
let me dream
by the light of the stars


Day 62 of 100 of a lovely challenge that combines my love for music and my desire that some day I will write yet again. The poem above is a collage of song titles that topped the charts throughout the year 1925.

My engaging goal is to create one “collage poem” every day for 100 consecutive days. I had a lot of fun looking up the music from 1925, then tracking down a few tunes and just sitting back and let the music wash over me, transporting me into the golden twenties… suddenly I find myself holding a glass of champagne, wearing a slick tux, a kick ass fedora hat, dancing wildly in a huge ball room where everything is laughter and endless fun. If you have a few moments to spare I warmly recommend you to have a listen to the tune below and allow yourself a quick daydream as the tune takes you away…
