I am a fan of Bob Dylan’s songwriting, his old man voice, his storytelling ability, and the many layers in his music. I was glad to hear that Dylan was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom.
When I finished reading Dylan’s book Chronicles: Volume One, I immediately wrote a poem . I’ve noticed that his work never fails to activate my muse. I finished his book on August 8, 2009 and this is the poem I wrote:
Kissed the book.
“You brought me some good hours of reading, Bob Dylan.”
Finely constructed sentences
Phrases that made my heart sing
Surprising descriptions of room and buildings
Chapters jumping here and there
My mind alert and jumping with you
Escorted back through memories
by words of a courageous man
and award-winning artist.
