IRRECONCILABLE

(wrote and posted the poem in December. Now it is chorded for ukulele)

SO GLAD I CAN LAUGH AT MYSELF.  ALL OF MY SONGS ARE STARTING TO SOUND THE SAME.  SIGH…BUT I’M HAVING FUN ANYWAY

 

G/The alluring variance of C/light

C/Delightful dawn to mystical Am/night

 

Am/Get-serious workaday C/sun

C/Incandescent moon signifying G/fun

 

G7/Winter solstice shortest F/day

F/Summer solstice, eternal Am/play

 

Dm/Sizzling lightning sparks the F/rains

F/Yet mist silences while vision G7/strains

 

G/Morning music like a C/hymn

C/But atonal hints surface to the Am/brim

 

Am/Our love hot as an ungrounded C/wire

C/Losing you becomes unending hell’s G/fire

 

G7/Sun will always rise, will always F/set

F/How many moons until I can Am/forget?

 

Dm/Me! Me! Fighting misan  F/thropy!

F/Trusting no one, how can this G7/be?

 

Dm/Terrible contempt through shadows C/creep

C/Strangling sweetness, in twilight Dm/sleep…
