A Legend In His Time (July Contest )

As if in a dream
I sat and stared
listening with deep intent
I knew all the words to every song
and found myself singing along
A fan I was for too long to remember
I could hardly believe my fate
but here I sat as a birthday gift
mesmirized by every move
chords that rang out from his guitar
and beheld the legend Gordon Lightfoot

If you could read my mind! I'm thinking I can see you at a concert with someone so special, on your birthday
It brought nostalgia to me of times gone by, you know what I mean. Gordon Lightfoot was a pleasure to meet this evening. I adore country music and for me the guitar will always win. Love this poem.

Ps you're a legend to me.

Thank you...Teddy

Here there won't be any such concerts for a long time to come thanks to covid.

Thank you...Teddy

Hi, Chrys,
What a gentle, captivating poem - just like his music. It feels like you were in a trance almost, you enjoyed and appreciated every moment. I think of him also as a poet, and get a feeling of inner calm when reading this.
Thank you!
