That would be me.I prefer the rain to the sounds of the roadThat would be me. by flying-katana
Water on water is an ancient noise
And could put me in any time
Rushing car engines are not my thing.
There's music in my ears right now, it's old but new again
Can't avoid the technology, no-one's going to put on a concert for a lonely little girl
Listen with the earphones to Victorian sounds
Played in the modern world--I wonder,
What Would Mendelssohn Do?
My life is a rushing swirl of ideas
Thoughts and words and old inky pens
The yellowing paper is greatest of all
Rare like a flower, like the paint on my hands.
There's a lily on my table, it stands maybe two feet high
The pot is plastic but the blossom is old.
I don't know the lifespan of an average bulb
I like to think it's from 1801.
My father found a telescope, we think it's very old
It's made of brass, discoloured, but I saw very far away
And the grandfather I should have met could play the violin--
I trust, much better than I ever could.
If only the sounds were the trains going by
