Another New Song Sung
by Michael Doyle

The troubled midnight and the moon’s repose                      (La figlia Che Piange – T. S. Elliot)
Made me think of song I’ve yet to compose
Too many notes still in their ragged jumble
Too many words falling into their mumble

There must be something new yet to say
Still, it seems I feel the same things every day
Always tossing around the same old feeling
While striving for the new in what I’m revealing

A couple more chords thrown in for fun
Certain that this song will be the one
That makes its way to collective memory
Or at least provides moments of reverie

Four chord progressions are better than three
When accompanied by some sort of melody
That makes others want to hum or whistle along
And yes, I’ll pretend it yet another new song
