A RINGO STARR PLAYLIST FOR HIS 80TH BIRTHDAY
STARLESS - EARTHBOUND

WERE THESE MY BEST DAYS (CORONAVIRUS TIMES)

Heron

I see a heron in the river

Without suspicion, oh so calm

Curiously watching me on the bank

Wondering what in nature I am

The wild is vibrant from this breather

Retreat to resurface our brutal tracks

Will we carry lessons into the opening

Or lose that hope in a hard fast reflex

 

The streets are getting busy 

I am looking both ways again

Yet the road that we are walking down

Has bend after sharp blind bend

Sometimes it’s not a map we need

But the right vehicle for the journey

So I’ll travel in patience and discipline

And pray the speed doesn’t over turn me.

 

Were these my very best days

Far from the joyless urgent howl

Taking refuge in the lockdown relief

From expectation’s constant scowl.
